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

Stephen Brooker, his partner Alison Thomas and their family

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, their families and their friends have kindly agreed to share their heart-warming stories...

Being in LOROS is comforting; it’s nice to know there’s always a medical professional around if you want to ask a question. You’ve got to be here to feel the safety, serenity and comfort. It’s priceless.

““At home, all of our emotions were running high, so we were arguing all of the time; I was at breaking point, but as soon as I came to LOROS, I was able to be a mum again. My kids can come and visit, and it’s quality time. They’ve noticed a difference in me; I’m more chilled out now.”
