Here's what other people have had to say about Bear Cottage:
I found this website whilst searching for children's hospitals to do my elective in. As a medical student in England I have never seen childrens hospices attached to hospitals. This is a lovely website and sounds like an amazing centre. I wish there were more such centres around. A big well done to everyone who created and runs the centre.
Thank you for a wonderful Christmas party. All families are made to feel so welcome and it is a little break from the sadness in our lives. Everyone felt comfortable and relaxed which is a tremendous achievement from you guys!!! (bereaved mother)
Thank you all so very much for the wonderful time we've spent with you all. You are an amazing group of dedicated people & Bear Cottage is a very special place because of all of you. (father)
Special thanks to Owen (chef) - we're all going on a diet when we get home. Your food was fabulous!! (mother)
Aidan wants to thank all the really nice volunteers who made his stay really special. Thank you so much! (brother)
Once again, a very big THANK YOU to you all for giving us such a relaxing stay. Caring for Perryn is a full-time job for my mother and me. Bear Cottage provides the rest we need to keep going between visits. (father)
Bear Cottage is like a second home to us and the staff an extension of our family. (grandparent and carer)
Fully sick! Fun to stay at and they don't just look after the sick kid, they look after the whole family. (brother)
I would just like to say that it was a great experience taking my pony down there for a patient. It was very touching and I thought all the kids, parents and of course Jodi (nurse), were great. You are all legends down there. (volunteer)
