Our patients and their families and carers are at the heart of everything we do

Your support means we can continue to deliver our care

With your help we can continue to develop LOROS as a place of care and support for terminally ill patients, their families and carers from across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Some of our patients and their loved ones have agreed to share their experience of the Hospice. Have a read here:

“I thought that if I came to LOROS, it would just be a bunch of old people sitting round in a circle talking about how we were going to die. In actual fact though, my experience couldn’t be more opposite.”

Gwen Rainbow

"If you have a problem or a query, they will do their best to investigate it, you’re not just left in the darkness hanging around. They seemed to pick up on how I was feeling at LOROS and put things in place to help me. “I’ve still got terminal cancer but I feel quite calm about it all now."
