Remarks [1]

Claire House Children's Hospice is a children's hospice in England. The hospice provides care for babies, children and young people up to the age of 23, with life-threatening or life-limiting conditions. Services include specialist respite, palliative, terminal and bereavement care. The hospice is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of its patients.[1]

The hospice, which is located in Bebington on the Wirral, relies largely on goodwill to pay the £2.7 million annually needed to fund operation.[2]

The hospice has been supported by several recognizable figures, including: Steven Gerrard, Tony Hibbert, and Marco Pierre White. The aim of Claire House Children’s Hospice is to enhance the quality of life for children and young people with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, offering a high quality service, with both personal and professional support. In partnership with the child or young person and their family, individual needs will be met; those of their family and significant carers will be recognised and respected in a safe ‘home from home’ environment

Claire House has a Teenage Annex designed to provide respect, dignity, privacy and social interaction for teenagers who are undergoing care there. They are hopeful that the annex will provide patients with a sense of independence, for which teenagers yearn.[3]
