 St Richard’s Hospice

We donate £1 from every sale.

St Richard’s Hospice cares for adults with a serious progressive illness, improving their quality of life from diagnosis, during treatment and to their last days. They also support their loved ones.

 Hospices provide care for people from the point at which their illness is no longer expected to be cured, until the end of their life, however long that may be. 

The hospice also provide support to the family members and carers in a number of different ways, to enable them to continue and be sustained in their caring roles.

The Family Support Team offers a wide range of support depending on the individual’s needs and preferences. Support includes bereavement counsellors, social work, group and telephone support and citizen’s advice.

Just some of the ways St Richard’s Hospice help patients & families:

  • early involvement in the course of a person’s illness alongside other therapies that are intended to prolong life
  • enabling people to manage their illness and remain independent for as long as possible
  • helping people to control their pain and other worrying symptoms
  • helping people with emotional, social, practical and spiritual issues
  • supporting families and carers before and through bereavement
  • working in partnership with other health care providers and organisations
  • encouraging wider understanding that death is a part of life
  • supporting the local community to be well informed about the care available to them
  • supporting the health and social care workforce through education to provide high-quality, individualised care.
