About Saint Francis Hospice
About This Shop
Saint Francis Hospice is an independent charity and one of the largest adult hospices in the UK.
We serve the population of Brentwood, Havering, Barking & Dagenham, and Redbridge – around one million people. We support patients with life-limiting illnesses including cancer, heart failure, motor neurone disease, and HIV / AIDS. This support could involve the patient spending time in our inpatient unit while our medical teamwork towards better symptom control or it may be a home visit from one of our physiotherapists to help with mobility. Services from saint Francis Hospice are there for families, friends, and carers as well as patents.
We recognise how overwhelming emotions can be at this time and offer counselling for those who are close to the patient so that they can explore how they feel and come to terms with their changing situation. As well as emotional support we can help in practical ways, providing advice on benefits and grants, ensuring you have the help you need in terms of day to daycare, and supplying information on other support services such as agency carers or nursing homes.
All the services we provide are free of charge to patients and their families. One of the ways you can help us to raise what we need is to visit one of our charity shops. Whether you are able to donate some quality items for us to sell, or you are looking for something to buy at a reasonable price.
