Hospice Services at Home TLC Ltd
Hospice Services at Home TLC Ltd (‘TLC’) is a Registered Charity operating in Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex. Based in Bordon, Hampshire. The Charity's mission is to enhance end of life care by providing a range of services for adults with life limiting conditions, their families and carers in their own homes. The services we provide are: • Free Complementary therapies for clients and carers • Befriending service, support and practical assistance. •Time out for carers. In addition to supporting people with specific conditions, the charity is also able to respond to those whose lives are restricted a result of the normal ageing process. More and more, we recognise the need to support the frail elderly who want to remain in their own homes but have difficulty if they are living alone. All our staff are qualified and all our volunteers are specifically trained. We are committed to the highest service standards and equality of access through sound planning, organisation and teamwork.
