St Michael’s Hospice

Providing high quality, responsive palliative care and bereavement support across Hastings and Rother, and working collaboratively with others to improve end of life care for all.

St Michael’s Hospice is committed to providing person-centred care which means we tailor our support to the need of each individual.  We work in partnership with patients and their families to identify what matters to them, what is making life difficult including troublesome symptoms or changes in day to day functioning, alongside any worries or spiritual concerns.  Our multi-disciplinary team then creates a personalised offer of palliative care support which is the best fit for the person at that moment, and adapts this if and when things change.

Supporting approximately 1,700 people per year, the Hospice interdisciplinary team, with support from trained volunteers offers:

  • Specialist symptom control – to keep patients as comfortable and well as possible
  • Holistic emotional, social, spiritual and practical support – to make sense of and cope with living with or supporting someone with a life limiting illness
  • Rehabilitation – to optimise patients’ independence and participation in activities meaningful to them
  • A 24/7 in-patient and community nursing service for patients and families
  • Respectful and effective working with other relevant primary, secondary, tertiary and social care providers to ensure maximum continuity and seamless support for patients nearing the end of life and their families
  • Support for people to be cared for in their preferred place of care, whenever possible and in line with their needs
  • Expert bereavement support to anyone in Hastings and Rother.

To run our current range of Hospice services we need to raise £14,400 each and every day

One bed in our In Patient Unit costs £630 each day to run

£44 is the average cost to the Hospice of each Bereavement Session
