Herriot Hospice Homecare to move its base this April
Herriot Hospice Homecare recently took ownership of the former Lambert Memorial Hospital building in Thirsk, which the organisation will be transforming into a community hub to bring more care and support to the communities it serves.
Herriot will be renovating the space to create a four-bed inpatient unit, bereavement counselling rooms, an education centre, café, and community hub facility with meeting space and IT facilities. The building will also become the home for its much-loved and already established community services, including the end of life care home service, sitting, befriending, and driving services.
Ahead of this, and from April this year, Herriot will be saying goodbye to its base at the Omega Business Village in Northallerton (pictured), and temporarily moving into office space at its Thirsk shop. This will be until the project at the Lambert is completed and places the organisation at the heart of the community where its new home will be established.
Herriot Hospice Homecare cares for and supports people living with terminal illness and bereavement across 1,000 square miles of Hambleton and Richmondshire, and alongside its six shops across its areas (including Northallerton), the organisation will remain at the heart of all the communities it serves.
Herriot Hospice Homecare is excited to be taking these next steps, which will mean more care for more people across the community, at a time when they need it most.Article Posted 18th February 2021
