Supporting you

Booklets

Welcome to St Christopher’s

To welcome you to St Christopher’s we’ve created a booklet which we hope serves as a useful introduction to the services we can offer you and your loved ones.

Planning ahead

Our Planning Ahead booklet has useful contents pages to allow you to dip in to the parts that are most helpful to you when you need them.

Managing breathlessness

Our Managing Breathlessness booklet will provide you with practical advice and techniques to help you manage your breathlessness.

Understanding your medicines

This booklet aims to answer questions and provide information on medicines.

Patients and Carers

Supporting you at home

Most people with a life limiting illness want to stay living in their own homes.

Our community palliative care services are here to help you do that.

Our services

We will do all we can to support you through everything from pain management and strength building, to getting creative through the arts or helping you work out your financial and housing concerns.

Resources and Information

Breathlessness

Our ‘managing breathlessness’ resources will provide you with practical advice and techniques to help you manage your breathlessness.

Exercise

We have produced a set of four videos designed to help people through exercise.

Booklets and leaflets

We have a selection of booklets, leaflets and easy reads for a wide range of topics.

Bereavement support

Support for children and young people

We understand how difficult it can be to find a way to explain what has happened to children. We’re here to support them, and you, through our Candle Child Bereavement Service.

Peer support

St Christopher’s offer peer support through drop in Bereavement Help Point sessions at St Christopher’s and in the community as well as Virtual Bereavement Help Point sessions.

We provide supportive forums for people to share that help us understand more about death, dying and loss.

Our activities focus on people coming together to listen to each other in a supportive, friendly and gentle environment.
