Hospice Care charity Phyllis Tuckwell will be temporarily relocating its In-Patient Unit to King’s Lodge Care Home in Camberley, Surrey, while its brand Hospice is being built on its existing site in Farnham.

Phyllis Tuckwell is the only Hospice Care service for adult patients, and their families, who are living with an advanced or terminal illness, across the whole of West Surrey and part of North-East Hampshire. Opened in 1979, their existing Hospice building has reached the end of its useful life, so they are building a new Hospice, which will be purpose-built, larger, better equipped, more accessible, and better able to act as a hub for the wide range of services which the charity provides.

Throughout the period of the build, Phyllis Tuckwell will offer its specialist services from alternative locations, ensuring that it is still able to care for its patients and their families during this time. Its In-Patient Unit (IPU) services will be temporarily relocated to King’s Lodge Care Home in Camberley, who were delighted to be able to support Phyllis Tuckwell. The IPU services will be provided from the care home’s new 10-room penthouse floor which is part of is 18 room addition of large en-suite rooms, which are being built to suit Phyllis Tuckwell’s needs.

Linda Lloyd, CEO of Aura Care Living, said: “King’s Lodge Care Home is delighted to welcome Phyllis Tuckwell’s staff, patients and families to the care home, and we look forward to strengthening an ongoing relationship with this highly respected community charity, who have provided specialist palliative care to the local community for over 40 years. It is a great honour to have them choose King’s Lodge Care Home for their temporary In-Patient Unit.”

King’s Lodge Care Home is opening a penthouse floor with 18 beautiful rooms each individually named to add to personalisation. The penthouse floor also offers stunning lounge facilities and quiet family meeting areas, providing a calm and tranquil sanctuary. Each of the spacious suites have views overlooking the woodland where, on sunny days, deer and other wildlife can be seen freely roaming the grounds.

King’s Lodge Care Home is one of the best luxury care homes in Camberley. It is expertly led by Sarah-Jane Parkin, Marinel Purdea and their highly experienced team, all of whom have been trained in-house, ensuring they can provide care without the need of Agency Services. Rated ‘Good’ by the CQC, King’s Lodge boasts beautiful interiors and facilities as well as 15 acres of mature woodland for its residents to enjoy.

Sarah Church, Chief Executive of Phyllis Tuckwell said: “We are really excited by this opportunity. We were very impressed with the patient-centred approach of Kings Lodge and this separate new wing provides us with the facilities we need to continue to provide vital inpatient care for the duration of our new Hospice build.”
