Hospice Services

Butterwick Hospice is closed until further notice.  Work is being undertaken to open as soon as possible and alternative provision is available.  Please speak with your Continuing Care Nurse for further support.

Zoë's Place Trust is a registered Charity providing palliative, respite, and end of life care to babies and infants aged from birth to five years with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. Care is provided in a caring, safe, home from home environment known as Zoë's Place Baby Hospices. During the time that the child stays with us, we provide various therapies to try and improve quality of life. 

Most of the support provided at Zoë’s Place is respite care. All the babies at the Hospice have a life-limiting or life-threatening condition and require differing levels of 24-hour support on a one-to-one basis. Zoë’s Place offers our parents and carers a chance to recharge their batteries or to spend time with their other children.

Alongside the respite care offered to the children, the hospice also supports the whole family through the challenges that they face. The trusts nurses are trained and on hand to provide counselling, support & advice to families at any time (even in the middle of the night). The hospice also provides bereavement support during the most difficult time of anyone's life, dealing with the loss of a child.

Zoe's Place Baby hospice is based in Middlesbrough and will care for babies across the whole o the Tees Valley and beyond.
