What is a Hospice?

We like to think of a hospice as a place where people can have the quality of their remaining life enhanced by removing painful and other distressing symptoms of their illness.

We aim to restore to the patient both comfort and dignity, to such a degree that they remain alert and able to take an interest in their surroundings and in their relatives and friends.

Life, however limited, is very important and a hospice should not be just a place for dying - but for the continuation of being alive.

A quote from the late Dame Cicely Saunders, pioneer of the modern-day hospice movement who was Chairman of St Christopher’s Hospice and President of Help the Hospices:

‘You matter because you are you. You matter to the last moment of life and we will do all we can, not only to help you die peacefully but to live until you die.’
