How can St Elizabeth Hospice help you?

St Elizabeth Hospice is here for people living with progressive and terminal illnesses. We offer expert care and support to help them, and their families, maximise the potential from the time they have left. Our work is centred around the individual's needs and we provide specialist support wherever it is needed, in your home, in the community or at our Hospices. 

Our team of professionals work together to identify the clinical and psychosocial needs of patients and refer them to any of our wide-ranging services that could help.

 

Services in your home 

Our Community Nursing Teams care for patients in their home or close to their homes, depending on need and preference. The teams include:

  • Hospice at Home
  • Community Health Care Assistants
  • Community Clinical Nurse Specialists

 

Day Services

We provide day care services at the hospice on Foxhall Road in Ipswich. Our day services facility enables patients and their families to receive specific care and support from our multi-disciplinary team. Each patient is assessed when they first attend and they can discuss concerns, ask questions, identify needs and decide what support is needed. Whichever service is chosen, the care will be reviewed regularly to ensure the most effective support is being offered. 

 

Intensive Support - Inpatient Unit

When intensive support is needed patients can be admitted to one of our short-stay Inpatient Unit in Ipswich. We have 18 beds and family member or carers can stay overnight. There are a number of reasons why a patient may be admitted, and most return home.


Helping you cope day to day

We can provide a range of support for patients and their families and carers to help them cope day to day.


Information for health professionals

We work with health and social care workers across Suffolk and Norfolk; GPs and nurses often refer a patient to the Hospice.
