Marie Curie – care and support through terminal illness
Marie Curie is the UK’s leading charity for people with any terminal illness. The charity helps people living with a terminal illness and their families make the most of the time they have together by delivering expert hands-on care, emotional support, research and guidance. Marie Curie employs more than 2,700 nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals, and with its nine hospices around the UK, is the largest provider of hospice beds outside the NHS.
The Marie Curie Cardiff and the Vale Hospice is on Bridgeman Road, Penarth and provides round-the-clock expert care and support. Our Hospice at Home service provides flexible, planned care for patients across the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board area. We also have nursing services across Wales providing care and support to patients and their families in their own homes.
If you’ve got questions about terminal illness or simply want someone to talk to, call the Marie Curie Support Line on 0800 090 2309* for free confidential support and practical information on all aspects of terminal illness.
