It is total care of the patient including emotional, spiritual and physical care. Palliation is designed to alleviate symptoms when an illness is not curable. Learn more about our care services here.

Is the Hospice similar to a nursing home?

St David’s is not a nursing home and we cannot provide long term care. We are a Specialist Palliative Care Centre providing symptom control, respite care, and care for those at the end of their life.

Do I have to pay for any aspect of my care?

No, all our services are provided free of charge.

So how does St David’s Hospice receive its funding?

Approximately a 4% of our annual funding comes from the Local Health Board and Welsh Government. The rest comes from our local community, mainly from fundraising events, our shops and our Lottery, legacies, individuals, local businesses and other organisations.

How can I help to raise money for St David’s Hospice?

We have a Fundraising Team at the Hospice who will help you plan your own event, or why not join one of the organised events throughout the year? Learn more here.

How do I get referred?

Patients and carers can be referred through their GP, hospital, District Nurse or other health professional.
