Many people would choose to spend their final moments in the comfort of their own homes, where they can have family and friends around them, and neighbours can pop by for a visit. With a gift in your Will, you could grant this final wish to more people. Marie Curie Nurses care for people with a terminal illness in their own homes so they can spend their final days in familiar surroundings, surrounded by those they love.
A place of care and comfort for those who need it
Across the UK, Marie Curie Hospices provide the highest standard of specialist care to people with a terminal illness – all in a relaxed and friendly environment. Unlike in hospital, there are no restrictions on visiting hours. Nurses and hospice staff will all go the extra mile to help families and friends spend precious time together.
Why end of life care matters now
Given the choice, 67% of people would want to die in the comfort of their own homes.
Across the UK today, more than 55% of people die in hospital - the place many of us say we'd least like to be.
By improving palliative care outside of hospital, the NHS could reduce hospital deaths by 60,000 by 2021. This would save £180 million in hospital costs.
