St Catherine’s Hospice is an independent charity which supports local people affected by life-shortening conditions to have quality of life, to the end of life.
Our specialist palliative and end-of-life care is provided at the hospice and in people’s own homes, and is provided unconditionally regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, religious or cultural belief.
We work with patients and families to help them achieve what is important to them. Care is personalised to each individual and their circumstances, and aims to help people live in comfort, and with dignity, independence and choice.
Because we know that time in hospital can be stressful and unnecessary when living with a life-shortening condition, our aim is to provide the support people need to be able to stay at home if that is their wish, or to receive care on our in-patient unit at the hospice.
The support of St Catherine’s doesn’t stop when someone has died – we are here to help loved ones through bereavement, and are privileged to host various opportunities for our community to remember and reflect together.
Our vision and values
Our vision is to help local people facing conditions like cancer, heart failure, respiratory disease and motor neurone disease to have quality of life, to the end of life.
We support people to achieve what’s important to them in the time they have, promoting comfort and choice in all we do. We have time to commit to the small details, as well as the big issues.
Our values are caring, compassionate and committed.
