Sponsor a nurse
Did you know the biggest cost to our charity is our nurses, costing £4.3m in 2015? By sponsoring a nurse, you are making sure that St Helena Hospice can continue to care for local people in the future.
Our services run 24 hours a day, 365 a year across north east Essex and we employ 117 nurses who work in our Inpatient Unit and out in your community providing vital care for patients and their families who need comfort, care and advice.
“In our role we help others; it allows us to provide comfort and support and make a difference every day. We are the nurses we are because of the patients we have been fortunate to meet and help; every patient we have the pleasure of caring for leaves an imprint.
“We can provide the comfort and dignity needed during a last breath.”
Gemma Millington and Tracey Young, St Helena Hospice Nurses
Over the year a monthly donation of:
- £5 could pay for an average three day’s car fuel for a nurse who visits patients in their homes.
- £10 could pay for a registered nurse on the Inpatient Unit for half a day, giving patients support with physical symptoms like nausea so that they can go home as soon as possible with the support of our community teams.
- £23 could pay for twelve one hour home visits for one hour from one of our Clinical Nurse Specialists. Our Clinical Nurse Specialist team help a patient deal with their pain and distress, can be a listening ear if needed and can provide the family with much needed advice and support.
