About Keech Hospice Care

Keech Hospice Care are an adult and children’s hospice that exist to provide high quality accessible specialist palliative care and to work in partnership to influence and educate others in end of life care.

They aim to lead the way in providing excellent care, supporting children and adults with life-limiting conditions and those affected by death and dying helping them to live well and make every day count.

In the grounds they have a children’s garden that is purpose-built to meet the needs of those with life-limiting conditions. As well as garden toys that encourage the children to be active, they also have super-sized garden percussion instruments that turn the garden into a sensory experience.

Keech Hospice Care has been lead by Chief Executive Office Liz Searle since 2016, who first joined the company in 2012 when she was appointed to lead and manage all the clinical services.
