Welcome to Rotherham Hospice
Rotherham Hospice is not just a building – it’s a way of caring for people both in the Hospice and the community. Our care places the patient and not the illness at the centre of everything we do.
We are an independent charity and the only adult hospice in Rotherham for the people of Rotherham and surrounding villages. We began offering Day Hospice services in 1994, and have grown over the years to now provide a 14 bed Inpatient Unit, with 75 Day Hospice places every week, and our Hospice Community Team who provide care in the community. We need over £5 million annually to deliver these services and rely heavily upon local people and organisations for their support.
Dying Matters Awareness Week 18 - 22 May 2015
Join us on Wednesday 20th May anytime between 10am and 3pm to find out more.
Whether you’re looking for advice on caring for someone close, planning for your own future or simply interested in finding out what the options are, we can help you think things through.
This awareness week is aimed at people approaching the end of their life and their carers, relatives and friends. It contains information about what to expect during end of life care and the things you may want to think about, including where you would like to be cared for.
There is guidance and advice around letting your family know what you want at the end of life, including information about your rights and choices when it comes to the treatment you do or don't want.
For carers, friends and relatives, there is information on what happens at the end of life, advice on talking to someone about dying and help with what to do after a death and coping with a bereavement.
It goes against every instinct that we have to start planning for our death: in fact, only one in three of us has talked to anyone about how or where we’d like to die. But every adult, of whatever age, needs to look ahead and ask ‘What if?' By accessing our resources, you can start to plan for the inevitable, and reduce worry and heartache for your loved ones.

Our Midnight Memory Walk is a 6 or 10 mile sponsored walk around Rotherham. The evening starts at Magna from 10pm, where walkers can have some fun in the big hall on giant inflatables and games – all free of charge! At the stroke of Midnight, the Mayor of Rotherham, Cllr Maggi Clark, will countdown to start the walk off. The route is well lit, and there are volunteer marshalls along the way to make sure you stay on the right track! You can decide on the night whether to do the 6 or 10 mile route. On completion of the walk, you will receive a commemorative medal and a certificate to show off to family and friends.
