Your local hospice St Luke’s is the local hospice for Harrow and Brent. We care for people whose illnesses are no longer curable, enabling them to attain the best possible quality of life during the later stages of their illnesses. Thousands of patients in Harrow and Brent have been helped or supported by St Luke’s and most families in the boroughs will know someone who will need the services of the hospice at some time in their lives. Our services include:

Care at Home. Many patients would prefer to spend as much time as possible at home. The Hospice at Home team provides personal care packages, responding rapidly to patients needs so that they can remain at home or be discharged rapidly from hospital or hospice and die at home if that is their wish. The Community Palliative Care team provides advice and support to GPs and District nurses as well as providing skilled care to patients in their own homes. Patient and Family Support Services. When someone has a life threatening progressive illness, relationships may come under pressure and additional emotional and practical support is provided to encourage and enable families to adapt and find a way forward together. Bereavement is a very personal and sometimes challenging event which can give rise to many unexpected feelings. St Luke’s bereavement service provides confidential, individual and group support to the family and friends of those who were known to the hospice.

The 12 bedded In-Patient Unit which offers assessment, symptom management control, respite, and end of life care. Many patients are admitted for short periods only, for a specific problem, and are able to go home again following assessment and treatment. Day Care provides holistic care to patients, looking at their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs. Patients enjoy the support of a multidisciplinary team including doctors, nurses, social workers, and therapists as well as the chance to socialise with other patients.

Complementary Therapies including acupuncture, aromatherapy, crystal therapy, reflexology, relaxation, sound and music, and spiritual healing, are offered to help deal with a range of issues including pain, anxiety, breathlessness and sleep disturbances.

Here at St Luke’s we are proud to provide all of our services free of charge The Hospice receives less than 30% of its funding from the NHS and relies on the generosity of our community to raise the £3 million we need each year to provide free end of life care in the Harrow and Brent community. Every contribution made towards St Luke’s makes a real difference to the lives of our future generations. Thanks and acknowledgments

Harrow Apollo Male Choir

St Luke’s would like to thank everyone who has supported this year’s Light up a Life. A special thanks goes to:

The Choir was formed in 1941 at the de-Havilland Aircraft Factory in Edgware, originally known as the ‘de-Havilland Male Voice Choir’. The Choir has changed its name to the Beverly Singers, Apollo Male Voice Choir and more recently to the Harrow Apollo Male Choir to signify the strong links with the Borough of Harrow.

The Harrow Apollo Male Choir Rachelle Goldberg – Violin player Tushar Dave – Volunteer and speaker The volunteers who supported the event All the supporters who have dedicated a light on St Luke’s tree and who have remembered a loved one with the Hospice.

The choir’s Deputy Accompanist, Avis Gerry played a key role in organising the music for Light up a Life. She is also the musical director and accompanist for other choral and music groups across Harrow and runs a Church singing group who perform for local residential homes and church fellowships.

Reading

by St Luke’s Palliative Care Social Worker/Bereavement Service Coordinator, Rhonda Culshaw Afterglow I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one. I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun; Of happy memories that I leave when life is done. Author is unknown

OUR SERVICES IN THEIR WORDS ‘My dad experiences pain when he sits for a long time because of his heavy weight loss, and the massages he had at St Luke’s helped to relax his body and give him a good sleep. He enjoys every minute of his Wednesday visits to Day-Care and really appreciates the help he gets from all the staff and volunteers. He likes meeting other patients who are in a similar situation.’ Family of a patient cared for by St Luke’s DayCare Unit ‘In the final two weeks of Mum’s life, St Luke’s staff came into our home morning, day and night to see to Mum’s personal needs. They were so friendly and kind and gentle with her. They gave her the special care that she required, whilst allowing her to keep her dignity. They brought a breath of fresh air and a welcome relief to the rest of the family during the most difficult times. Being at home was Mum’s wish as well as ours.

We wanted to support her and it meant that all of our close family and friends were able to visit and be there for her.’ Family of a patient cared for by Hospice at Home

Leave a gift for St Luke’s in your Will to help continue free Hospice care for future generations Legacies are a crucial part of our income. In 2012 they raised over £600,000 for our patients, enough to cover the cost of our community teams, who visit patients in their own homes, enabling them to be cared for in familiar surroundings rather than being admitted to hospital. Your family, friends and those causes closest to your heart are your priority when it comes to making a Will. Making sure that your final affairs are kept in the way that you think is best can make you feel at ease and put your mind at rest. If you choose to include a gift to St Luke’s in your will you can be sure it will make a lasting difference to local people who really need it.

Legacies to charities are generally exempt from inheritance tax, so a gift in your Will to St Luke’s could be tax free for us and in some circumstances could reduce the amount of inheritance tax for which your loved ones are liable. For further information about leaving a gift in your will, please contact the Legacies Officer on 020 8382 8143 or visit www.stlukes-hospice.org/legacies.

Kevin Beever left a legacy to St Luke’s in his will and his son Danny told us, ‘I was in Croatia with my children for the summer when my brother called me with the news. Although cancer hadn’t been confirmed, I somehow knew that it would be terminal. My father was admitted to St Luke’s InPatient Unit. While we were there, ALL the staff were so unbelievably nice to us. My father has known about St Luke’s for a long time. He took part in the Hospice’s Lottery and he left £5,000 in his Will to St Luke’s.’
