Weston Hospicecare was born in 1989 when members of the Weston-super-Mare community realised the need to care for those who were very ill at the end of their life.
In 1991, the first day services began which was followed in 1997 by the opening of an inpatient unit. In 2002, we moved to Jackson-Barstow House in Uphill. A change which was made possible thanks to an incredible charitable gift from Enid Sybil Jackson-Barstow.
Her incredible contribution provided a springboard towards the present day where we care for more than 1,000 patients and their families every year. Gifts in wills are still a vital part of providing care, read more about how crucial they are by clicking here.
