Last year St Helena supported 4,171 people – half of whom lived in Tendring – helping them make their own choices and live with dignity.
1,951 patients and family members were supported in their homes by St Helena across Tendring last year
Our nurse specialists had 6,180 contacts with patients and families being supported at home, over the phone, via video or face to face
Following the closure of the Tendring Centre, we want to reassure the local community we are as committed as ever to ensuring local people facing dying, death and bereavement can receive the care and support they need, when they need it.
Our dedicated Hospice in the Home team provides support to patients and families in their homes – or care homes – and is made up of nurses, healthcare assistants, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and family support workers and counsellors.
They also work very closely with doctors, complementary therapists and the spiritual care team at St Helena; as well as other health and social care colleagues, such as those at the hospital, in community care and GPs, to ensure patients and families have access to all the support they need, when they need it.
You can read about some of our clinical nurse specialists supporting patients and families in your local community right now, below.
We couldn't continue to provide the vital care and support people need at the most difficult time in their lives with the support and generosity of the wonderful local community. The equivalent of 7 out of 10 of the patients and families we care for are funded by people like you giving donations, buying in our shops, playing the lottery and through gifts in Wills.
A donation of £23 could help provide pain and symptom relief to a patient at home from a community clinical nurse specialist, like those you can read about below. Read about the difference your support can make.

When you make a donation to St Helena Hospice, we are charged transactional fees by other companies, including fees for processing payments made to us, looking up addresses and validating bank account details.
We are very grateful to our donors who offer to offset some of these fees with a minor addition to their total amount. This is however completely optional and we are very grateful for your support whether or not you choose to contribute to processing fees.Close
We are able to claim an extra 25p on every £1 on your donation amount for no extra cost to you, as long as you are a UK tax payer; have paid enough income tax or capital gains tax in that tax year; and are donating your own money. For more information about Gift Aid, please visit www.gov.ukClose
