CRASH and Corporate Patrons have now helped Ashgate Hospice undergo two projects. In 2019, CRASH helped transform their cramped in-patient unit into nine individual private and peaceful rooms for patients and loved ones – read the CRASH case study here. And more recently creating the new entrance area that gives direct and independent access to all. These two projects have made a huge difference to the lives of people receiving hospice care and the loved ones who visit them.
