Here for you, for as long as you need
We provide palliative and end of life care to adults (18+) with a progressive, treatable but not curable life-limiting illness or with severe frailty, and also their family (including children) and carers.
We care for people across our 700sq mile catchment area which covers Bath & North East Somerset (BaNES), and parts of Wiltshire and Somerset. Our services provide physical, psychological and/or spiritual support, and are free of charge. We’re available day and night to ensure that you have the right care, at the right time.
When someone is ill, it’s not just the patient who is affected. Life can be turned upside down for the family and for friends and carers. That’s why we’re here for you, for as long as you need.
Your donation will help us care for even more patients and their families when they need it the most.
Not only will it support people at the Hospice at Winsley House, but it also supports your community and those that wish to be cared for at home. Thank you.
How you can support us
This year for our Christmas Appeal, we’ve gathered Christmas messages from our team – staff and volunteers – to express our gratitude and convey our seasonal reflections, focused on a commitment to delivering compassionate care.
Our heartfelt Christmas message is simply that Dorothy House is sufficiently supported in order for us to continue to provide palliative and end of life care to those in the community who need us most.
Learn more about our commitment to making every precious penny count this Christmas.

The Dorothy House podcast
We all have a digital footprint. Be it on social media, via music downloads, gaming avatars, voicemails, photos or email. But what happens to all of these digital touchpoints when someone dies?
We interviewed James Norris, founder of the Digital Legacy Association and MyWishes to help answer some of the most important questions about how to curate, protect and preserve our digital legacies.
