St Luke’s Hospice

St Luke's Hospice

Full Description

What we do

We care for people aged 18 and above throughout Sheffield who have incurable illnesses. We aim to control their symptoms, alleviate pain, and give them the best possible quality of life – all free of charge.

Many, many thousands of lives have been touched by St Luke’s. People who are patients themselves, or have a friend or relative who has been cared for at St Luke’s know at first hand the value of what we do.

Our philosophy

Our specialist, dedicated staff control patients’ symptoms and alleviate pain to ensure that they’re physically comfortable, as well as attending to their emotional and spiritual wellbeing, their wishes, anxieties and hopes.

To us every patient is an individual with unique needs and preferences, so we care for the whole person. We do everything in our power to support, comfort, and inspire patients, adding quality to life at a time in their lives when every day matters more than ever.

As well as caring for patients, we support, advise and counsel their families through what can be a difficult and distressing time for them.

Caring for patients throughout Sheffield

St Luke’s doesn’t only look after in-patients. Some people do stay in our in-patient rooms, but others attend our Therapies and Rehabilitation Centre as day patients; and throughout Sheffield our community nurses give patients the benefit of their advice and expertise, helping them to stay at home for longer and remain as active and independent as possible.
