Together for the Community

The Rosemary Foundation was founded in 1997 by a group of dedicated former staff members of the Bordean House palliative care unit, to provide a ‘Hospice at Home’ service for patients suffering from cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.

Since then, the Foundation has supported over 3,300 patients (November 21) and their respective loved ones, and has extended the area it covers to serve a wide range of place, including Mid and South East Hampshire and into West Sussex.

The Rosemary Foundation is fully funded from grants, donations and legacies and receives no statutory funding except in exceptional circumstances where we have supported our NHS colleagues to reduce hospital admissions.

We provide a valuable service at no charge to the patient or their family. 

As of November 2019 our service is rated as 'Outstanding' by the Care Quality Commission (the CQC)
