Jersey Cheshire Home provides a long term home for some of Jersey’s most severely physically disabled individuals. The home provides for the needs of its 25 permanent residents with constant 24 hour care.. In addition we provide a range of services to 400 plus regular monthly users of the amenities. We have just embarked on a major £2 million expansion programme to increase the number of rooms and improve facilities. The average stay in a Jersey residential care/nursing home is between six and 18 months. At Jersey Cheshire Home it is 15 years.

It costs £6,000 a day to provide nursing, residential and day care, along with respite services, aquatherapy and physiotherapy services for physically disabled adults.
Disabilities we care for include Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, epilepsy, Spina Bifida, strokes and head injuries among others.

The home relies heavily on fundraising efforts and public donations to help residents and day care visitors to lead full and independent lives. It provides access to activities, skills and events that allow them to reach their personal potential targets or aspirations.

The Jersey Cheshire Home is affiliated to Leonard Cheshire International, which supports over 250 projects running in 55 countries worldwide. Leonard Cheshire Disability helps over 21,000 people and their carers in 150 Cheshire Homes and in the community across the UK.

Jersey Hospice Care is an independent charity, which makes no charge for its services. We seek to enable our patients to live the remainder of their lives to the full, to remain at home if they wish and to die with dignity where they choose. We provide specialist palliative care for everyone, who requires it, irrespective of cause. In 2014 we opened our doors to non-cancer patients, and last year 46% of our patients had other life limiting illnesses. As a result of this decision we have seen a significant increase in the number of patients we care for. Our annual running costs for 2016 amounted to £5.3m which equates to approximately £14,600 per day. JHC does not receive any state funding in relation to direct patient car. The Specialist Palliative Care Team provide specialist palliative care seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

The In Patient Unit offers facilities for short stay admission. We have 12 en suite bedrooms. We increased the number of operational beds from nine to twelve this year to accommodate the increase in demand.

Day Hospice aims to enrich patient’s lives through individual and group activitie. JHC provides a comprehensive range of therapies which are available to patients, their families and friends. These are carried out by staff, alongside highly trained volunteers which include Physiotherapy, Complementary therapies and Lymphedema therap. Our Community Bereavement Service provides free support to any islander who has had bereavement.

Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey is a cancer charity designed to support anyone affected by cancer. Macmillan Jersey aims to help people to live well and take back control of their lives through their experiences with cancer. We also want to make sure that those supporting cancer patients get the support they need too.

We provide support in a variety of forms:
Practical: When you have had a cancer diagnosis it can have an impact on you physically, emotionally, socially and financially. At The Oasis, Lido Medical Centre, we can help you and your loved ones find the information and support that is right for you, with our free and confidential services.
Emotional: However cancer is affecting you, we are here to listen, and you can be honest with how you’re feeling, without any time constraints.
Wellbeing: If you or a loved one is touched by cancer, it’s important to make time for yourself, which you can do at The Oasis, through the range of complementary therapies and relaxation classes we offer.
Group: We hold regular coffee mornings, afternoon teas and support groups at The Oasis where people can get together in an informal environment and share experiences and support.

The Stroke Association is the UK’s leading charity dedicated to conquering stroke. We believe in life after stroke, that’s why we support stroke survivors to make the best recovery they can, that’s why we campaign for better stroke care and it’s why we fund research to develop new treatments and ways of preventing stroke.
In Jersey over 125 people a year are affected by stroke. It kills twice as many women as breast cancer and more men than prostate and testicular cancer combined.

We offer information, advice and support to stroke survivors and their families. We have a weekly Peer Support Group for stroke survivors and carers and also an aqua-therapy class enabling stroke survivors to work with a physiotherapist in a warm pool – all provided through our fundraising activities and donations on the Island.
Locally, as part of our preventative work, we offer blood pressure checking called ‘Know Your Blood Pressure’ events to corporates and the general public – high blood pressure is a leading cause of ischaemic stroke. The Stroke Recovery Service we provide in Jersey, to support stroke survivors and their families, is funded solely by fundraised income.
