Nothing was ever too much to ask. It was lovely to be treated like a normal person with jokes to survive the days and nights. Every single person that works at Barnsley Hospice is an angel.

“Being here has opened my eyes to what the hospice is, and I would tell anyone that they don’t need to be frightened of coming here. It couldn’t be any better.”

“It was the hardest time of our lives that the staff at Barnsley Hospice somehow made bearable. Their kindness and exceptional care just came naturally. They just understood what we were going through.”

The team seemed to listen to what we had to say and took our opinions on board, it made us feel listened to.

I remember visiting for the first time and was in awe of the place. Dad was relaxed, and all of the staff were so lovely to us. It was like a home, not a hospice.

My mum spent the last three weeks of her 97-year life in the hospice. The love, attention and care she received went beyond extraordinary and I will never be able to thank the hospice and its staff enough.

By the first evening of Mum’s stay, the difference in her was noticeable to us all. When I came to visit, it was clear how well she was being looked after, and the whole family just felt like we’d been scooped up into a massive hug.

Barnsley Hospice looked after my friend with genuine care and sensitivity. It was such a shock to lose Louise and so comforting to know she was in good place at the end.
