How We Help

How we can help

St Helena Hospice exists to serve our patients, their families and carers. We are here to help those affected by incurable illnesses such as cancer,  motor neurone disease, dementia, chronic pulmonary disease, multiple sclerosis, heart, lung or kidney disease and AIDS. Around 24 percent of our patients have a life-limiting illness other than cancer.

We offer support to both our patients and their families and carers with a number of services including those through our Inpatient Unit in Highwoods, Colchester and also through our Therapies and Wellbeing service that operates out of the Joan Tomkins Centre in Colchester and our Tendring Centre in Clacton-on-Sea. We also offer many of our services in the community, in people’s homes. 

St Helena Hospice is not just about medical care; it’s about caring for the whole person and the people in their lives. We hope that the information on these web pages will help you to understand more about the support and services that are available and how you or your family and friends might be able to benefit from them. You will notice that the support we offer is not just for our patients, everyone at St Helena Hospice appreciates that family, carers or friends may need help too. 

If you have any further questions please contact us; we are always happy to help.
