St Luke's provides specialist palliative care for patients with progressive incurable life-limiting illness who have complex symptoms and psychosocial needs requiring the input of a multiprofessional palliative care team. Inpatient care at the hospice may be offered to those who have needs that at the present time require assessment, treatment and monitoring as an inpatient. Care is offered not on the basis of specific diagnosis (e.g. cancer), but on the basis of specialist needs.
The Hospice also provides terminal care, i.e. care for those in the last days of life, when such care cannot be adequately provided in a community setting (home or Nursing Home).
To be reliable, trustworthy and enthusiastic.
A great sense of pride and achievement that they are supporting St Luke's Hospice by volunteering serving refreshments to patients, their families and visitors.
