Pilgrims Hospices has been providing end of life care and support for patients with a range of life-limiting illnesses and their families across east Kent for more than 30 years. Pilgrims Hospices is a registered charity which gives its services entirely free of charge.

The first of our three hospices opened at Canterbury in 1982 and was followed by Thanet in 1992 and then Ashford in 2001.

Besides the inpatient beds the three hospices also care for patients who are well enough to attend weekly day hospice sessions. These offer a range of activities including exercises, breathlessness management, complementary therapies as well as creative writing or arts and crafts.

A growing majority of our patients choose to spend their final days in the familiar surroundings of their homes in the company of loved ones and Pilgrims Hospices is fully committed to helping its patients achieve their wishes to do so.

More than ever, Pilgrims Hospices needs your help. We’re now caring for nearly 2,500 patients each year – a figure that is set to climb in the years ahead as people live longer and have more complex conditions.
