Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service
Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service is the new partner charity working with Berkeley Homes Western.
The Berkeley team has already raised £21,000 for the charity, which has enabled it to employ a full-time nurse for six months. This allows Alexander Devine to provide 192 direct support sessions for the children it works with, including respite, palliative care, play therapy and bereavement support.
These sessions are delivered either at the child's home or in the new hospice, which began providing day care in June 2018. The nurses and carers are at the heart of the hospice service - helping families to make special memories, enjoy new experiences together, be supported, or simply have a chance to rest and relax.
