At Gentle Dental we feel it’s important to give back to the community of Salisbury.
Each year we support a different charity in Salisbury or Wiltshire, in 2017 we’re supporting the Salisbury Hospice Charity.
The Salisbury Hospice Charity helps to fund the Hospice so it can continue to offer nursing and medical care, emotional and practical support and in patient services.
In 2017 we will be directly raising money for the Salisbury Hospice Charity, and encouraging our clients to join us. The highlight of the year is the Midnight Walk which we took part in and we matched all the money that we raised.
On top of our fundraising we’ll also donate £10 each time someone refers a friend to us.
Set up in 1981 to provide palliative care and support for terminally ill patients within the Salisbury area, the hospice has grown and accommodates up to ten patients in its purpose-built facility.
They provide nursing and medical care, welfare advice, emotional and practical support, occupational and physiotherapy, spiritual care and creative activities. Care is provided to people in their homes and through inpatient services at Salisbury Hospice.
To ensure that people in the Salisbury community experience a better end of life experience, the hospice shares its specialist skills through education and support for other local care providers, for example GPs, district nurses, hospitals and care homes.
Their specialist team provides care and support for patients with complex needs arising from life-limiting illnesses, and also for their families and carers.
