“St Catherine’s gave me my life and body back”
When Lauren was first referred to us, she thought hospice care was about dying. A stay in our ward changed her view, and we were able to give around the clock care, medical support and therapies that made Lauren feel like Lauren again.
“I’ve been told I don’t have long, but I’m still relatively young and not sure I’m ready to go yet. I don’t want to have my disease but if I have to be looked after, this is the best place. Lovely things happen here, so while I’m sad about what’s happened to me, I’m not worried or frightened about being in the hospice when the time comes.”

“The team at St Catherine’s made all the difference; if it hadn’t been for them Sarah couldn’t have died the way she wanted. From their first visit we realised there was something special about them.
