St Nicholas Hospice Care is a charitable organisation that offers help and support for people in Haverhill.
Welcome to St Nicholas Hospice Care
St Nicholas Hospice Care is a charity providing support for people and families in West Suffolk and Thetford who are living with life-shortening illnesses. We aim to improve the quality of lives of patients and their families as they live with their illness.
We provide our care all across West Suffolk and Thetford. This could be through drop-in sessions, advice and support, a visit in somebody’s own home or care in the Hospice building in Bury St Edmunds. Support could be through clinical care, complementary therapy, or just a chat over a cup of tea with one of our dedicated volunteer Hospice Neighbours.
Other services include confidential and psychological support for adults via our Family Support team and our Nicky's Way programme, a bereavement and grief support programme for children and young people.
A 24-hour telephone advice line -01284 766133 - is available for all patients and family members as well as healthcare professionals, including General Practitioners, District Nurses and Carers.
St Nicholas Hospice Care - Community Hospice Team
Many people living with life-shortening illness prefer to be cared for in their own home surrounded by loved-ones and their familiar possessions.
Thanks to the expertise and dedication of the Community Hospice Team at St Nicholas Hospice Care, this has been possible for more than 1,500 people in their own homes.
The Community Hospice Team consists of Clinical Nurse Specialists, Nurses and Nursing Assistants, a Consultant in Palliative Medicine, Doctors, Social Workers, Complementary Therapists, Chaplains, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Psychological Therapist and Volunteers.
The Team works together to provide support and advice for patients and their family members, working in partnership with local GPs, District Nurses and Social Carers.
St Nicholas Hospice Care - Haverhill shop
Retail is an important fundraising element for St Nicholas Hospice Care with nine shops across West Suffolk and Thetford.
One of these is in Haverhill High Street where a large selection of high-quality, low-cost goods are on sale including clothes, furniture, bric-a-brac, books and toys.
The shop is staffed by a shop manager and a large team of volunteers under the direction of our Retail Operations Manager.
As well as providing a quality home for bargains through its high street shops, the Hospice is always in need of donations of good quality furniture, clothes and other items.
Best of all, larger items can be picked up from anywhere in the Haverhill area so if you are looking to replace your three-piece suite or are maybe thinking about a house clearance, give the Hospice a call.
