It costs us £5,000 per day to care for our patients… Our care extends your whole family
The aims and objectives of St. Clare’s Hospice are to provide Palliative care for people in the South of Tyne area. We are committed to achieving the aims of the independent Hospice movement which are to meet the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of the patient with progressive and advanced illness, and of their loved ones.
The Hospice consists of 8 in-patient bed, used for symptom and pain management, respite care and end of life care. Each room is single occupancy with en-suite facilities. There are two larger rooms, one being a family room and one with a walk in bathroom/ wet room. A guest room is available to relatives who wish to stay overnight.
The Hospice has a Day Care facility which caters for up to 15 patients per day Tues-Fri 10am-3.30pm.
The Hospice has wheelchair access and ample car parking.
A Hospice is a place which provides palliative and end of life care to individuals whose condition is not curable and aims to closely monitor any symptoms and aims to control them.
A person may be admitted at different stages during their illness for a short period of care, for rehabilitation after treatment, for management of pain or symptoms or for end-of-life care. The Hospice is not a long-term In-Patient Unit, so most patients only stay with us for a short period of time in the Hospice to alleviate symptoms and then will return to their home or normal place of care. An average length of stay can be anywhere between 9 and 14 days.
All of our staff are dedicated to providing the best possible individualised care to our patients and their carers.
