Did you know more than 90% of our care is provided in people’s homes?

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.

St Helena provides individual care and total support to local people facing incurable illness wherever it is needed: at home, over the phone with our SinglePoint 24/7 advice line, and at the Hospice.

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.
