St Clare Hospice is a charity providing specialist palliative care to improve the lives of people living with a terminal or life-limiting illness in West Essex and East Hertfordshire, including Bishop’s Stortford and Sawbridgeworth.
Our approach to care gives patients, their families and carers, the confidence to cope so that, together, they can enjoy the best possible quality of life, whether at home or in the Hospice.
St Clare is there for the whole person and the whole family. We offer a wide range of services, providing physical, emotional, social, psychological and spiritual support, ensuring we respect and encourage individuality, dignity and self-esteem.
Our holistic approach to care extends to relatives and friends both during their loved one’s illness and through bereavement.
We work in close partnership with all health and social care professionals involved in a person’s care, including GPs and district nurses.
Our aim is to make sure patients and their families have access to skilled, compassionate and sensitive care in a place of their choice.
With limited NHS funding, we need to raise most of the £4.6 million it costs each year to provide our vital services. We therefore rely on our local community to help us raise money each year so we can continue being there for local families facing one of the most difficult journeys in life.
