It’s been 40 years since we cared for our first patient at Jersey Hospice Care.
Jersey Hospice Care was created 40 years ago by the community, for the whole community, and the community remains firmly at the heart of all we do today. Since 1982, Hospice has moved its original base at Grouville to Mont Cochon and has expanded its site and services steadily to support many more islanders, today we typically support around 1,000 islanders and their families every year
