Jessie May
Children’s Hospice at Home 

Created by a family, for local families


Jessie May is a charity that provides hospice at home care for terminally ill children in Bristol and the surrounding area. The charity was set up by the parents of Jessica May Purrington, a little girl who died at home aged 4 months, surrounded by her family and her nurses. Jessie May has a team of dedicated nurses who provide care to children and families during a child’s life and after their death.

Sophie and her Family

“Having support from Jessie May Nurses is like having an extra pair of hands. They can administer all of Sophie’s medicine which means that I can use this time to take Sophie’s sister to the dentist or choir practice or ballet class. I can even help with homework! The support I get from Jessie May means that my husband doesn’t have to support me for those few hours. It’s so important.”
