14 Feb Shooting Star Children’s Hospice
The Shooting Star Children’s Hospice provides care, support and advice for children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their families. These care services are offered free of charge to families, 365 days a year.
Shooting Star care services were launched in 2005 and now support more than 250 families. They are based around the needs of the whole family, so as well as caring for the children and young people, there are activities and support groups for siblings, parents and other relatives. This makes a real difference to families, enabling them to live life to the full as well as helping them through tougher times.
Families benefit from Shooting Star’s care services in the community, in their own homes and at Shooting Star House, the purpose-built facility based in Hampton, Middlesex. These services include Short Breaks (respite care), Day Care, Outreach Care, Family Support and Therapies, and End of Life Care.
It costs £3.5 million every year (£9,500 a day) to maintain these care services and with no long-term statutory funding, the majority of this comes from voluntary donations.
Enhancing quality of life, when every moment counts.
Soni Dentlal Implants will donate £5 to Shooting Star Children’s Hospice for every person who registers with us.
