Here at John Taylor Hospice we provide practical help, alleviate pain in all its guises and rekindle possibility.
In our busy world, with all the wonders of technology, we don’t usually have time to think about death or dying. Even as we get older, many of us hope not to have to think about how, or when we die; we hope that death will surprise us, creep up on us unawares. But if death does confront you head-on, because of a serious illness, then you can be assured that John Taylor Hospice is there for you and for your family, every step of the way.
The team at John Taylor Hospice look forward to getting to know you and putting together “Taylormade” care to fit right in with what you and your family need. Care that will change with you, whenever you need it to.
We call that care “palliative care” and over 100 years we’ve learned that this has to bring together:
Practical help – this might be personal care or helping you to keep your household on track.
Alleviating pain - in all its guises, because pain comes in many ways and pain is different for everyone. At John Taylor Hospice our team is there at home or at The Grange, to listen and to help you feel safe and unafraid.
We specialise in helping you to get the best control over your physical symptoms. We specialise in helping you to endure loss and grief, which can of course, mean many things. We know, if your pain comes from deep within or challenges your faith that we will still be alongside you and with your faith community too, if you’d like us to.
Rekindling possibility - the experience of illness can take many things that we enjoy away. At John Taylor Hospice we’ve learned how to ease the things that you enjoy right back into your life, and we specialise in taking people by surprise with delightful new opportunities too.
We've been here for 100 years but every year we learn more. We change with our community to ensure that we keep on being there for local people.
In October 2011 we started a new and exciting chapter in that story. John Taylor Hospice is the first UK hospice to become an Independent Social Enterprise. This means that all the money we receive is invested into the work that we do in Birmingham and the West Midlands. We are also a Community Interest Company (CIC) which means we're listening to what's important to you, the people of our community. As an independent company how we respond is determined by you and we will stay alongside you as long as it’s helpful too.
