Dove House Hospice is your local hospice, and has been caring for people in Hull  East Yorkshire for almost 40 years.  Patients and families are at the heart of everything we do, whether we are caring for people at the end of their lives, providing therapies to help people with life limiting illnesses improve their quality of life, or giving much needed bereavement support to grieving families. Our special  person-centred care focusses on the needs of the person we are caring for, not just their illness, and staff take the time to get to know patients and their families to help make staying at Dove House a home from home experience. 

The hospice is situated on Chamberlain Road in Hull, and is set in beautiful gardens where patients and families can spend precious time together in a quiet and peaceful setting, making memories. 

There are a range of services available for people over the age of eighteen years who have a life-limiting, progressive or terminal illness, including cancer, neurological illnesses, heart and respiratory disease, dementia and HIV/AIDS. 

At Dove House specialist care means special care, embracing patients and families with warmth, understanding and compassion from the point of diagnosis onwards, so if you think we may be able to help please take the time to read about all the services we provide, or get in touch to find out more.
