The staff are welcoming and friendly; I benefited from the complementary therapy; there was an unexpected level of carer support.

At St Rocco’s we provide specialist care to those with a life-limiting illness and their loved ones.
Our aim is to support them to get the very best out of life.
We also care for those reaching the end of their lives and our underpinning aim is to provide good symptom control, ensuring both physical and psychological comfort. Our focus is on caring.
Our medical and nursing professionals, as well as support staff and volunteers, are all committed to delivering and promoting good palliative care, not only in the hospice, but in any care setting.
There are a number of ways to refer patients to St. Rocco's.
Inpatient care is the care provided by St Rocco’s Hospice when someone is admitted to the hospice.
We know that, even if you have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, sometimes all you want to do is get on with your life in the best way that you can. At the Vitality Centre we are here to support you to do just that.
St. Rocco's is a hospice 'without walls' and so our care extends into the community to those who need us in their own homes.
If you feel that you or a loved one requires our services, you should talk first to your doctor, consultant or district nurse. You can also contact our Vitality Centre directly on 01925 579212 for advice.
This is an informal group that meets once a month. It is intended to provide support and the opportunity to meet and chat with others with similar experiences.
Facilitated by the St. Rocco's Counselling and Emotional Care Team and Hospice Volunteers, the cafe is a chance for anybody who has been bereaved to chat to our team and receive support and information on bereavement and grieving.
