St Nicholas Hospice Care is a local charity providing help, advice and support to people in West Suffolk and Thetford in the final chapters of their life, who are living with long-term and life-threatening illnesses.
Our services are not just for patients, but for their family and friends too. They include everything from specialist medical care to bereavement support and practical help.
If given a choice where they would like to receive care, most people would say in the comfort of their own home, surrounded by the people and pets they know. One of our primary aims is to make this happen, wherever possible.
Open House takes place in locations across West Suffolk and Thetford. Open House is aimed at people facing long-term and life-threatening illnesses, loved ones, carers, or those coping with bereavement. Each week we may incorporate mini-educational segments around subjects such as breathlessness, managing fatigue and nutrition.
The drop-in sessions offer the chance to meet others facing similar situations in a comfortable and relaxing space (as well as tea, coffee and biscuits!).
There is no need to book and family members, friends and carers are welcome.
The Hospice’s ward provides 24-hour dedicated, specialised care. The ward has single rooms and single-sex four-bedded rooms overlooking beautiful gardens.
Where possible, the aim of clinical staff is to enable patients to return home as quickly as possible by giving them professional, tailored care while supporting their family members.
The care package given is dependent on the patient’s needs and is delivered in partnership with the patient’s own GP and other external healthcare professionals.
Our family support service is provided by social workers, psychological specialists, counsellors and specially trained and supervised volunteers.
