Our care is for any life-limiting illness. This includes conditions such as respiratory disease, heart disease, Parkinson’s, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis and end stage dementia – as well as cancer.
St Clare is there for the whole person and the whole family. We offer a wide range of services, providing physical, emotional, social, psychological and spiritual support, ensuring we respect and encourage individuality, dignity and self-esteem.
Our holistic approach to care extends to relatives and friends both during their loved one’s illness and through bereavement.
We work in close partnership with all health and social care professionals involved in a person’s care, including GPs and district nurses.
Our aim is to make sure patients and their families have access to skilled, compassionate and sensitive care in a place of their choice.
We receive a limited amount of NHS funding, so most of the cost of providing our services each year is met through donations and voluntary funding.
At St Clare Hospice, our passion to provide the best specialist palliative care to improve the lives of those affected by terminal or life-limiting illnesses lies at the heart of all we do.
