We believe no one should have to face a life-limiting and terminal illness alone. We are here to support the patients, families, carers and health professionals who need us. Our vision is that everyone should have choice and excellence on their journey towards the end of their life. We aim to seek out all those who need palliative care and ensure that something is being done to address their needs.
Our broad range of adult hospice services aims to enrich the lives of patients and their families from the diverse communities of Luton and South Bedfordshire. Care is available to all those who can benefit from it and we work to meet all the needs of our patients, including those arising from their ethnic, cultural or religious heritage.
All services are provided free of charge, but without the vital support of our local communities and the generosity of our supporters we would not be able to continue this work.
Hospice at Home works in the community providing a totally confidential service to patients & their carers.

Our care does not end with the death of a loved one. Keech offers a range of bereavement services to the family & friends of our patients.
At Keech we offer music therapy to help support you in expressing your thoughts, feelings and experiences with a qualified music therapist.
Art therapy is the use of art materials to express thoughts, feelings and experiences.
We use complementary therapies to focus on the whole person rather than the part where your illness may affect you.
At Keech we greatly welcome patient and family feedback about their experience of our services.

Our 16.5m hydrotherapy pool and six-seater jacuzzi are carefully designed to cater for the needs of people with disabilities of all ages.
The staff went above and beyond the call of duty not just with me but with my family too. I’d come to terms with my situation and was ready to fight while everyone else was falling apart around me, but the nurses were brilliant and really supportive.
