St Richard’s Hospice provides free specialist palliative care for patients with serious, progressive illnesses and supports their families.
Each year the hospice team supports more than 3,300 patients and family members in Worcestershire with compassion, kindness, dignity and respect.
Patients are cared for in Day Hospice, the 17-bed In-patient Unit or in their own homes by a specialist professional team as well as many trained volunteers.
In the In-patient Unit specialist staff are on hand 24 hours a day to manage patients’ symptoms and where, if they so choose, patients may spend the last few days of life in comfort and dignity.
St Richard’s is grateful for all donations towards the £8.8m (2018/19) we need to raise to continue our work.
