"It was okay to be ourselves."

About: St Lukes Hospice

(as a relative),

My dad was admitted to the hospice as he was struggling at home. He was in the hospice's care for one month and while he took his final leg of his life journey the care, integrity and support of everyone, reception staff, cleaning staff, care assistants, nurses and doctors was exemplary.

They treated my dad with dignity and guided us by example as to how to navigate such a stressful and sad time, that its okay to laugh and to cry and to chat about the mundane, it was okay to be ourselves. A hospice can seem very daunting if you have never been to one before but the team at St Lukes made it a very human experience.

Thank you for taking the time to send us feedback at a time that is very emotional and stressful.

It is so true that for some families the thought of admission to a hospice can be daunting. I am pleased that having been at the hospice this is no longer your feelings. That you felt supported and guided by the team through this time.

be assured of our thoughts for you as a family at this difficult time.
