Following guidelines given to us by Public Health England, St Rocco’s Hospice has updated our processes on visiting the hospice and patients in our In-Patient Unit.
We have detailed the new advice below. Please carefully read the new guidelines before visiting the hospice. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact us on 01925 575780.
We are continuing to balance keeping all people as safe as possible and supporting social contact of loved ones during the pandemic. Any patient who is at end of life will be allowed named visitors and time of visiting will be agreed with the family.
Our lottery collectors are no longer calling on our lottery players to collect their subscriptions.
If you have not had a collection this week, please send us a cheque for the number of weeks you wish to be include (please send to Lottery, St Rocco's Hospice, Lockton Lane, Bewsey, Warrington) or sign up to direct debit to continue to be part of the draw.
We are hoping to hold a number of events throughout 2021, depending on the guidleines given to us from Public Health England. We will update our website and social media channels with new information as and when we have it.

We know that this is a very scary and worrying time for most of us and that a lot of people will be concerned with how their mental health will be affected.
We are very lucky to have an amazing Counselling and Emotional Care Team here at St. Rocco's who have provided a few tips on how you can manage your mental health in this time.
Tips for Looking After Your Mental Health
1. Keep connected - take time to phone and write to friends and family.
2. Try not to follow every news update if it makes you anxious. Pick one time to catch up with news and stick to it.
3. Take regular exercise, every day if possible. Even a walk will help clear your head.
4. Try writing things down, or journalling your feelings. It may help them seem clearer.
5. Accept that you have no control over this situation, but that things will not be the same forever.
We also have resources for those who may be living with a bereavement during this time.
£15 can provide homemade meals for a patient for a day
£30 can provide a week’s supply of hand sanitiser for our doctors and nurses
£35 can provide protective gloves so nurses can care safely for a week on the inpatient unit
£50 can provide a session of specialist bereavement counselling for someone who has lost a loved one
We might also occasionally send this information in the post. You can update your contact preferences at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning 01925 575780.
