Hospice committed to delivering a high standard of care to those with a terminal illness. Being there for you and your family.  



Can you help #LOROS support patients and relatives in their own homes? Become a Home Visiting Volunteer today and be part of something amazing! Having a home visitor can make the biggest difference to our patients and their loved ones lives, by providing a friendly face, a listening ear, or simply having a chat over a cuppa. PLUS it gives carers the opportunity to leave their home with peace of mind, knowing their loved ones are being looked after. So if you have four hours to spare, we would love to hear from you! Call: (0116) 231 8470 or comment on here for more information.
