Lifeline is reaching out with new centre

Evesham Editorial 13th Feb, 2023   0

A VITAL lifeline for Evesham residents suffering from a life-limiting illness, caring for anyone suffering from a life limiting illness or if they are bereaved has been launched.

Campden Home Nursing is opening a new Outreach Centre at Riverside Shopping Centre opposite Coffee Break in a bid to help residents access free support more easily.

The charity already cares for patients in Evesham and surrounding villages, but the new centre aims to reach out to more people needing its services.

Locals will be able to visit the centre to access information and advice every Tuesday and Thursday, between 9.30am and 4.30pm,

Campden Home Nursing provides the community with a much-needed service at Jecca’s House, its headquarters in Chipping Campden via a Serious Illness Support Service and a Hospice Care at Home Service, for patients who would like to stay at home, in the last weeks of their life.




Bereavement services such as counselling, a support group and Play Therapy for children four to 11 years old are also offered.

Helen Makaritis, chief executive officer at Campden Home Nursing, said: “Our long-term strategy has always been to reach out to the wider community so that more people hear about all the services at Jecca’s House.


“So, when we saw an opportunity to open an outreach centre in the middle of Evesham, we jumped at the chance.

“We hope that by having a presence in Evesham, we can replicate a mini Jecca’s – a place where people can come for support and information and where the kettle is always on.”
