St Bernard's Hospice specialises in Home Based Palliative Care - meaning our 5 Qualified Nursing Staff and 22 Carers visit patients in their homes. We serve the East London Community - 50km radius.
Palliative care is a specialist approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problems associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.
It is vital that people directly affected by serious and life limiting conditions like cancer are empowered to speak up and demand the best care possible for themselves and their loved ones without it creating financial difficulty for them.
