The Harrogate Guide asks can you help Saint Michael’s Hospice

Saint Michael’s Hospice is here to help people affected by terminal illness to live as full a life as possible. We do this by providing hospice care to people in the Harrogate district living with terminal illness. We also help others to offer hospice standard care to local people.

We are here for people who need extra support on top of the day-to-day care they receive from GPs, district nurses, hospital teams and nursing home staff. Without the hospice, these people could be left to face the complex issues and forgotten challenges of terminal illness alone.

We care for people with a variety of terminal illnesses, including heart failure, respiratory illnesses and neurological conditions; as well as cancer. We care in people’s homes, hospitals, care homes and at our hospice.
