Our Care

Our care is unique to each individual – whatever his or her physical, emotional or spiritual needs. Our hospice team includes our own doctors, nurses, social worker, counsellors and therapists working alongside highly trained volunteers.Through care in your home, In-patient Unit, Living Well Centre and all our further support services, we are able to help patients and families at a very difficult time.

One of our main aims is to enable patients to stay at home where possible, providing our care alongside their own doctors and nurses with the back up of the Living Well Centre. When appropriate, patients may be admitted to the In-patient Unit.

Every year St Richard’s provides free, expert care and support for over 3,400 patients, their loved ones and the bereaved.
