At Saint Catherine’s we are doing everything we can to keep our patients, families, staff , volunteers and supporters safe at this difficult time.
Our key clinical services are still running, which means that patients are still being cared for in the hospice and at home.
However, in line with Government guidance and with safety paramount, we have taken the decision to reduce some face-to-face services and restrict visitors on site.
Every decision being made is in the best interests of our patients, families, volunteers and staff.
We need your continued support and help more than ever as we continue to pay and support all our members of staff – we appreciate every donation, every message and every offer of support.

Dying Matters Week 2021

May 10th 2021

This week is Dying Matters Awareness Week (May 10-16) which is aimed at encouraging open conversations around death and dying.

This year’s theme is making sure people are ‘in a good place’ when they die.

At Saint Catherine’s, we do everything we can to ensure people’s wishes are met at the end of life. Whether our patients are in the hospice or at home, everyone is looked after as an individual.

Here is some recent feedback which shows the importance of being ‘in a good place’:

“Care was given with such compassion, patience and empathy, providing to our family to feel at ease knowing mum was looked after. A respite from weeks of worry. Thank you also for the support and dedication given in arranging for mum to return home.”

“After the last 10 months of hardly being able to see mum, we both treasure the times we were able to visit during her last month, to talk and to hold her hand.”

“Every detail of care provided was so well done with such gentleness and compassion that I can hardly find the words to say how much it meant to us all.”
