The Rosemary Foundation in 2017: a year in numbers
Last year, The Rosemary Foundation saw a 10% increase in new patient assessments on 2016, with 213 new patients taken on. The average length of care given to a patient in 2017 was 50 days.
In 2017, our seven part-time trained nurses and six care support staff:
- Made 5,030 individual visits to patients (an average of 14 a day)
- Spent 6,260 hours with patients or family (averaging 17 hours each day)
- Drove 55,843 miles to get to and from patients (that’s twice around the world!)
The most important statistic for us is that The Rosemary Foundation achieved the chosen place of care for 75% of our patients.
The Rosemary Foundation offers a “Hospice at Home” service in Petersfield and surrounding communities for patients in the latter stage of life-limiting conditions.
It costs around £1,600 a month to keep one of our nurses on the road, but we receive no public funding, relying on fund-raising efforts to continue providing our service, at no cost to the patient or their family.
