St Catherine’s is an inspirational charity which is very close to our hearts, and the hearts of so many other people in our area.
The charity provides care for patients and families who are affected by life-shortening conditions. They specialise in care for adults with cancer, motor neurone disease and heart failure.
When Rob’s mum was diagnosed with cancer in 2016, it was an enormous shock to us all.
The whole family came together to provide her with care and support at home. But when the time came for more specialised care, St Catherine’s was there for us.
All the staff working in the hospice were so wonderful and that’s why they are such an inspirational charity. They help people enjoy the best possible quality of life, to the very end of their life. Care is personalised to every person they work with meaning they live in comfort and with dignity.
Working with patients and their loved ones, the staff at St Catherines, help them focus on what’s important to them in the time they have left together.
The grounds of the Hospice are not only impressive, but provide a tranquil space for people to spend time together.
Although they do care for people in the last days of life, they provide support right from diagnosis.
And the support of St Catherine’s doesn’t stop when someone has died. They help loved ones through bereavement, and they host lots opportunities for the community to remember and reflect together which are often very moving but uplifting.
