St Catherine’s Hospice is the only adult hospice serving the communities of Chorley, Longridge, Preston and South Ribble. We look after patients at home, in the community and at the hospice through a broad range of services.
Whilst many of our patients have cancer, we care for people with all kinds of life-shortening illnesses, including heart failure, motor neurone disease and Parkinson’s disease.
Although many people have contact with us near to the end of their lives, we also provide treatment, care and support to patients and families over an extended period. Around 50 per cent of people who are admitted to our in-patient unit return home again once their condition is better managed.
