Holistic hospice support for patients, carers and families

Our aim is for the services we offer to help each person affected by terminal illness with what matters most to them.

Living with a terminal illness can affect a person in many different ways; from changes to their body, their relationships and their independence to differences to their sense of self, their social life and their confidence. Saint Michael’s exists to help people cope with any challenges they may face, so that they can live life to the full, to the end.

Our doctors and nurses can help relieve a person’s symptoms, while our physiotherapist and occupational therapist can assist an individual to find new ways of managing day-to-day living or taking part in the things they enjoy. We also have many other professionals on hand who can ease pressures around money or housing or help a person explore meaning in their life.

Our Patient and Family Liaison Team can offer ways to bring comfort to the friends and family of our patients, supporting their needs alongside their loved ones, and helping them come to terms with their changing circumstances.
