About St Barnabas House
With your help we’re providing the very best hospice care – week after week.
Since 1973, St Barnabas House has provided palliative care for patients – and ongoing support for families and friends following the loss of a loved one.
We care for patients from Worthing, Adur, Arun, Chanctonbury, Lancing, Shoreham, Littlehampton, Henfield, Steyning, Partridge Green and Storrington – with a 20-bed In-patient Unit at our Worthing hospice as well as an extensive Community Team offering essential nursing care, advice and support in patients’ own homes.
All our patients are suffering from serious illnesses and are often approaching the end of their lives. The hospice care that we provide aims to support each individual patient, managing pain relief and maintaining the best quality of life and independence possible. We can’t cure illnesses, but we can help our patients spend their last days in comfort and dignity, whether at home or in the hospice.
What’s more, we provide all of this much needed hospice care absolutely free of charge.
By playing our Lottery, you are helping to pay for the expert care and support we provide for desperately ill local people and their families.
At St Barnabas House, we provide a range of therapeutic facilities and activities – which your Lottery membership helps pay for.
At Titnore Lane, we have 20 bedrooms – each with en-suite facilities and access to a private garden – including five family rooms with enough room for relatives to stay.
Our team of nurse specialists and doctors provide a high quality service of hospice care to help in managing symptoms, family support and supporting psychological and emotional needs out in the community. We also run a Hospice Outreach Project, this is a mobile vehicle unit staffed by a senior nurse who will be able to provide information and advice on all aspects of hospice care available at St Barnabas House and out in the local community.
Hospice at Home
Available seven days a week, our Hospice at Home team helps patients receive essential care in their own homes.
Our physiotherapists provide rehabilitation for patients on the In-Patient Unit and in the Day Hospice. We also provide treatment in the patients’ own home as part of our Hospice at Home service and outpatients can visit our physiotherapy gym.
We offer occupational therapy services providing holistic assessments for patients on how they manage their daily activities, such as getting out of bed or getting in and out of the bath.
Our complementary therapists provide relaxation and relief to help patients release stress and tension. We offer aromatherapy, massage, reflexology, reiki, Indian head massage and creative visualisation and relaxation.
Whether through photography, painting, song, dance, poetry or video, our resident artist helps patients express difficult emotions through creativity.
Here we can care for up to 18 patients, offering an informal environment where they can meet other patients and take advantage of all our therapies and services.
Our social workers can offer patients and their families emotional support, counselling and a range of practical information and advice.
