Maintaining your independence and wellbeing through rehabilitation and exercise can improve your quality of life.
Our Outpatient Clinics provide nursing advice and supportive care for people with life-limiting illness who are mobile, including those still working and able to attend an appointment. You may already be coming to the Hospice for other services so we can tailor appointments that work for you.
Maintaining routine and independence in daily activities can be challenging when you are trying to cope with the symptoms of a life-limiting illness.
Good nutrition and diet are essential for people with a life-limiting illness. Our Hospice dietitian works with inpatients and outpatients, three days a week, to assess, diagnose, and treat any dietary and nutritional problems you may be experiencing.
We currently have two wards, Lourdes and St Michael's, which have 17 beds each. Many patients who stay on these wards will return home after a brief period of medical and nursing help and many will return home following a short period of intervention. We have a large team of professionals who will work with the patient and their family/carer. Some patients become too unwell to be able return home or may choose to die here at the Hospice.
Our light, spacious and comfortable Education Centre is the ideal venue to hold your meeting, conference or event.
Namaste is a support programme designed to improve the quality of life for people living with advanced dementia and their families.
Day Hospice gives people with a life-limiting illness access to a wide range of services. You will come into the Hospice one day a week for 12 weeks to spend the day with other people who are in a similar situation to you.
Emotional distress and worries are not unusual among people affected by life-limiting illness and are an understandable reaction to what can be a painful and challenging experience. Family members and friends, including children, may also be finding things difficult. Our team of experienced counsellors and therapists can help you and your family talk about your situation in a safe and sensitive way.
At St Joseph's Hospice we care for the whole person which means supporting your mental wellbeing as well as your physical needs. Complementary therapies can help you to cope with some of the stresses caused by illness. It can be relaxing and also help relieve some of your symptoms.
