About the Charity
ellenor is a specialist palliative care provider for adults and children in Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley (and children across the London Borough of Bexley.)
Graham Perolls founded the 'Ellenor Foundation' in 1985, inspired by a vision that those facing the end of life should have only the best care possible either at home, or as close to it as possible (named after his parents Ellen and Norman). In April 2015, we embarked on a new future as ellenor, building on our history and reputation of excellence and care to give us the best chance to be heard, gain support and provide the high-quality services that our vision and mission requires.
ellenor serve a population of more than 500,000 in Kent with over 90% of our care services provided at home. We provide care at home for both adults and children and still are one of the only hospices providing acute oncology care and end of life care to seriously ill children in their own home.
We offer a care service for children of all ages with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. In Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley we provide clinical nursing support working with children’s families to provide care at their place of choice, which is often their own home. This means the children can receive care in familiar surroundings. Across Dartford, Gravesham, Swanley and Bexley in addition - we provide respite and wellbeing services which include, play therapy, music therapy, counselling and bereavement support to mention just a few.
