We offer quality palliative care through assessing the physical, emotional, psychosocial and spiritual needs of people over the age of 12 with life-limiting illnesses at the end of life. We also provide bereavement care and support to families following the death of their loved ones.

Home care

  • St Luke’s Combined Hospices provides palliative care to people in their homes.
  • Our palliative care sisters are on duty from 08:00 till 16:00 during the week with telephonic back-up after hours and on weekends.

In-patient unit

  • Our 10-bed, in-patient unit provides 24-hour care to patients by means of a skilled team of doctors, nurses, social workers, spiritual counsellors, complementary therapists and volunteers.
  • Normally, patients are admitted at the request of the palliative care nurses for a short stay to:
    • stabilise symptom and pain control
    • give families and/or carers respite
    • provide terminal care.

Spiritual care

  • Hospice care would not be complete without providing emotional and spiritual care for someone facing the deepest and hardest questions about life and death.
  • We provide spiritual support to patients of every faith or no faith in the form of:
    • prayer and rituals
    • meditation
    • visualisation
    • reading and writing
    • art and crafts
    • music and song
    • companionship

Counselling

  • We have a team of social workers who provide counselling support as well as helping with practical matters such as wills, guardianship, grants, pensions, Living Wills, family support and most importantly, the patient’s care plan.

Bereavement Care

  • We find that some people experience similar reactions to losing a family member or friend and learning about these reactions in light of one’s personal and individual reaction can bring some comfort and insight. Although we cannot take the pain away or grieve for you we can provide bereavement support for relatives and friends for up to 13 months after a death of a St Luke’s patient.
