Lewis Manning Hospice Care provides extraordinary care and support to patients diagnosed with a life-limiting condition and to their families. Their catchment area is East Dorset, BCP and the Purbecks. Their day hospice operates at its HQ in Poole, at satellite hubs across the region, and virtually via iPads, offering services to meet the clinical, social, well-being, creative and mental needs of its patients. In the past year it has supported 450 patients and their families. All its services are free to patients but it receives only 25% of its funding from the NHS. The rest has to be gained from charitable giving. 

Many people say they feel they are treated differently after diagnosis, and are no longer allowed to live life to the fullest. The Hospice wants patients to enjoy their lives right up until their last moments, by having fun, laughing, and still being able to be themselves. Each patient’s safety and wellbeing is at the forefront of all the care they provide.

Every year the hospice provides care for hundreds of patients and their families through our important services, which include:



All care is provided at no cost to the person or their family. Support from the local community is vital to the running of Lewis-Manning Hospice Care.
