About St Rocco’s Hospice
St Rocco’s Hospice provides specialist care and support across Warrington, helping those who are coping with a life-limiting illness.
We promote physical, social, psychological and spiritual wellbeing for patients with life-limiting illness, and, in doing so, places patients, carers and families at the heart of everything we do.
Here to help: a place of care, a tower of strength
St Rocco’s Hospice supports the borough of Warrington, a community of over 200,000 people. We provide highly specialised care – along with a wide range of services – to support those who have been diagnosed with illnesses which are terminal, or life-limiting.
Care that’s not available elsewhere
Many of our people are trained to a very high level, and provide services which are not readily available elsewhere in the area – working with other healthcare professionals, such as your GP or hospital.
A registered charity, dependent on your support
All of the care we provide is free, for both patients and their carers. We don’t even charge for car parking. Yet only around a third of our funding is provided by the NHS; the rest comes directly from the wonderful community which we support – via fundraising activities such as sponsorships, legacies (money left in wills) and donations – and through our many shops and the hospice lottery. Without your help, we couldn’t provide the care we do.
More than just a building
St. Rocco’s has inpatient beds, provides day therapy care, living well services, a neighbourhood support service and Hospice At Home service.
