All of our hospices are friendly, welcoming places, staff don't wear uniforms and families are encouraged to treat the hospice as a home-from-home. Care at end of life isn't the only service we provide, many of the children and young people accessing our services are extremely active but need extra support and care.
The hospice building has six bedrooms for children and four rooms for families to use for overnight stays. There is a multi-sensory room, hydrotherapy pool, music room, play room, teenage room, sensory garden and specialist outdoor play equipment.
Helen, William’s mum says:
“One of the best things about the hospice is the parent and toddler group. It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn’t really happen anywhere else. We’re able to discuss things that are relevant to us as parents of children with different needs to other children.
Having a child with complex health problems can leave you feeling like an outsider but when we’re at hospice events and we see all the other families in similar situations it helps us to know we’re not alone.

The Treehouse in Ipswich is the newest of our hospices. It has five bedrooms for children and young people and accommodation for families to use for overnight stays. There is a multi-sensory studio, hydrotherapy pool, music room, play areas, sensory garden, a woodland walk and specialist outdoor play equipment.
Angela, Eilish’s mum, said
The care and support we have received from EACH has been invaluable to us - to ensure Eilish was as comfortable as possible and after she gained her wings to help us through a very difficult year. We desperately wanted to care for Eilish at home and this would not have been possible without the support of the Symptom Management Team and EACH. Paul has been helped through a difficult time with his support at sibling days and art therapy. These sessions not only allow him to remember Eilish and to talk about her with someone who’s not family, but to help him learn how to carry on his life without his best friend.
