St Joseph's Hospice
St Joseph’s Hospice was founded by the Sisters of Charity who came from Ireland in 1900 to care for the poor and dying of East London. They opened the doors to the Hospice five years later in 1905. Our mission is to provide compassionate, specialist palliative care to people in the diverse community of East London who are living with life-limiting illness. We treat each person as unique, encouraging and enabling them to reach their full potential until the end of their life. Our care is provided free of charge to anyone in the local community who needs it. We listen to the patient and their family so that we can work together to manage pain and distress whether physical, mental, social or spiritual. We encourage openness and honesty in communication to create an atmosphere of comfort and safety whether in the Hospice, in the patient’s home or in the community.
