The chances are you know someone who needs hospice care. Sadly, many families of people with terminal and life-limiting conditions are missing out on the vital care they need for their loved ones, as well as the emotional and psychological support available to help them cope.

Throughout July St Luke’s Hospice is joining forces with national charity Hospice UK and other hospices across the country to launch a new campaign aimed at widening access to end of life care.

At St Luke’s we offer compassionate care which can play a vital role in easing people’s suffering, providing comfort and relieving considerable pressures faced by families. The Open Up Hospice Care campaign seeks to raise awareness among the community about the fact that hospice care is available to all people. Matron Wendy Field said,

“Every day we see the positive impact that our care has on people and their families in mid and south Cheshire. We provide wide-ranging support for terminally ill people, which includes medical care, spiritual and emotional support and also complementary therapies to promote wellbeing, as well as providing their families with practical and emotional support, such as bereavement counselling. We want to ensure that everyone has access to hospice care when they need it and are very proud to be a part of this campaign.”
