Under Review — this page was due to be reviewed by Wednesday, 08 November 2023. The information shown here may be outdated.

St Joseph's Hospice provides expert support which places equal emphasis on a person's clinical, physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs, understanding that everyone is different.

Most people living with a life-limiting illness would like to stay in their own home. The hospice can provide specialist advice for symptom control issues, as well as emotional, social and spiritual support, working alongside other community and acute health and social care professionals involved in the patient's care.

  • inpatient care with a focus on maintaining independence
  • day hospices
  • outpatient clinics providing nursing advice and supportive care
  • carers' service
  • compassionate neighbours scheme
  • namaste care service for people living with advanced dementia and their families
  • empowered living team.
