Heaven, holiday and a bit of a party!

ITV came to St Joseph’s late last summer to make a short film about the reality of life at a hospice. Heaven, holiday and a bit of a party are just some of the words and phrases used to describe life at St Joseph's.

In the film Paula, who has a rare condition and comes to the hospice for pain management shares her experience of how the hospice helps her and her partner Ian manage when the pain becomes too much to bear.

The film also features spoke to Steve and Jude who were staying at the hospice with Daryl, Steve’s son and Jude’s husband, who was nearing the end of life.

We would like to thank ITV for allowing us to share a snapshot of life at this wonderful hospice and a massive thank you to Paula and Ian and Steve and Jude for sharing their stories. Not forgetting Saad and Jo for their fascinating tour of the hospice and all the staff, volunteers and patients who make St Joseph’s Hospice such an amazing place to be.

You can watch the film here.


We would like to hear from you
