Do you need help?

You have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness such as Cancer, HIV/AIDS or Motor Neurone disease. You understandably feel afraid, uncertain and angry. Our professional Hospice nursing staff will support and care for you, striving to ensure that you live each day to the fullest, with dignity and free of pain.

When is it Time for Hospice?

“I wish I had chosen hospice care sooner,” is a common sentiment expressed by hospice patients and their families and even medical professionals who refer patients to St Francis Hospice. If you are asking yourself whether it is time to choose hospice care, the answer is likely yes.

St Francis Hospice often finds that those who receive our specialised care early in the process of a life-limiting illness often improve temporarily and are thus able to experience the benefits of pain relief, symptom management and comfort care, which all assist in the easing of anxiety, depression and fatigue
