By seeing people in their own environments and what they enjoy doing and how they live day to day, we get a full picture of what their lives are like and how we can work as a team to help them live their lives and do the things that are important to them. It’s a privilege to be able to support people with mobility and exercise to help them remain active at home for their wellbeing and their independence so they can get to do the things they enjoy doing.
Visiting people in their own homes is a privilege, it is a window into their world from which you can learn so much. I love working in the community and getting to see so many people from all walks of life. Each visit is unique; people really appreciate you taking the time to go and visit them, listen to their journey, and help to problem solve together to get the best achievable outcome.
Visiting with our patients and their families in their own homes enables them to feel more at ease and relaxed; this in turn encourages open and honest conversation surrounding any difficulties they may be experiencing in their day to day lives.
We as a team strive to promote an individual's independence whilst considering and upholding their wishes and needs. Assessing them in their own environment makes the process much more personable and efficient. A home is, for most people, their sanctuary. I've always considered it a privilege to be welcomed into someone's home at such vulnerable times - I love what I do!

When you make a donation to St Helena Hospice, we are charged transactional fees by other companies, including fees for processing payments made to us, looking up addresses and validating bank account details.
We are very grateful to our donors who offer to offset some of these fees with a minor addition to their total amount. This is however completely optional and we are very grateful for your support whether or not you choose to contribute to processing fees.Close
We are able to claim an extra 25p on every £1 on your donation amount for no extra cost to you, as long as you are a UK tax payer; have paid enough income tax or capital gains tax in that tax year; and are donating your own money. If you pay less income tax and/or capital gains tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of your donations in that tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
