At Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice, we provide care wherever and whenever it is needed. That might be in your own home, in your local community or at our base in Selly Park.
Our services support you at different stages in your journey, and each one is tailored to meet your needs.
Community Palliative Care Team
Our clinical nurse specialists will ensure you’re fully supported during your time with the Hospice.
Over the course of 12 weeks, you’ll learn how to cope with symptoms, take part in therapeutic activities and set realistic goals around what is important to you.
Family and carer support
Our team can help with all sorts of emotional and practical matters too, whether it’s your housing situation, helping to plan your funeral, bereavement support, or tackling financial worries.
At our base in Selly Park, we have a ward where patients receive 24/7 care from our dedicated and friendly team of staff, who will manage your symptoms and address any concerns.
Every Wednesday, our Day Hospice is filled with conversation and chatter when patients join us to take part in activities and meet others going through similar experiences
Space to Breathe
A 5-week course where you’ll learn techniques to manage your breathlessness including exercises and relaxation to help you with day-to-day life.
To provide support in your local community, we have a number of clinics where you can meet us to talk about how you are and what we can do to help.
Hospice at Home
If you choose to be at home for your final days, we will work alongside your GP and district nurses to make sure you are as comfortable as you can be.
We all worry about the people we leave behind. Loss is a part of life but that doesn’t make it any easier, which is why we have counsellors to provide bereavement support.
From support in your home, in your community and at the Hospice, all of our services are free of charge.
Our staff provide expert care directly and also partner with other healthcare professionals to ensure care is co-ordinated for each person.
Many people benefit from our services. Every day, we look after more than 400 people with life-limiting illnesses across Birmingham and Sandwell.
We are committed to improving the quality of life for people living with life-limiting illnesses, as well as supporting their families and loved ones during one of the most challenging periods they will face.
