“Sometimes I feel like I just couldn’t do without St Catherine’s. At Day Hospice I know I’ll be looked after instead of being the one looking after everyone else. Sometimes that’s all I need – someone to think about me for a change.”
Christine, 43, is a Day Hospice patient here at St Catherine’s. Read her story and find out how coming here has changed her and her young family’s life.
“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.”
“To be quite honest with you, the staff make the job, nothing is too much trouble, they are conscientious and have the right type of manner which makes you feel good. They’re attentive, they all take time to introduce themselves and make me feel good”
“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. From that point on we were all under their care, not just Sarah but me, our son and other family members too.”
