Dorothy House Hospice Care was set up in 1976, based at the Bath home of its founder Prue Dufour, A woman of vision, determination and deep faith, she saw a need for care of terminally ill patients in their community, rather than in hospital.

Over the years Dorothy House has grown to reflect the changing needs of palliative care, and we now provide our services to a population of 550,000 over 700sq miles. From the hospice’s beginning to the current day our purpose has remained the same, to provide compassionate care to our community to enable those with a life-limiting illness to live well and die well.
