About The J's

The J’s Hospice has been developed through the drive and vision of the local community to see enhanced care and support for young adults across Essex with life limiting conditions such as cancer and a wide range of complex neurological and metabolic conditions.

The J’s provides tailored nursing, respite and end of life care, advice and advocacy, emotional care, bereavement support and a range of activities for the young adult and their family in the comfort and security of their own home. Our aim is to help young adults to live their life to the full, however short.

The J’s are not about you as a sick person but as a normal person with normal hopes and dreams.

I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for us; the support, understanding and care. You’ve made everything so much better and easier. Any time I have had services falling apart; The J’s have been there to co-ordinate and communicate with professionals.


The J’s came to our son’s home, got to know him, gave him medical help, moral support and respected his wish to remain strong and positive.
