The Hospice of St Francis
The Hospice of St Francis is a charity which helps 2,000 local people and their families, in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire, to live their precious lives well through improving symptoms, achieving personal goals and helping them to feel safe. Defined by each person's need, their free care for people managing, or recovering from, serious illness has many forms - care at the Hospice, at Home, or in their Health and Wellbeing Centre which offers courses, workshops, clinics and therapies.
Based in beautiful surroundings just outside Berkhamsted, they are also there for family, friends and carers. They offer advice for those worried about a loved one, which could mean recommending group activities, supporting children through a close relative's illness or providing practical support and advice when someone special is no longer there.
