Meena cares for her husband Dilip and they both attended our exercise classes.

Meena said, “I joined in with the class alongside Dilip who always felt much better after the exercise.” It was the couple’s first time at our hospice, but Meena added, “The hospitality St Catherine’s offers is the best! We were always welcomed so nicely, and it made us feel part of the system. Everyone has been so helpful, and the tea and cake was the cherry on the cake!
