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 used to have such a responsible job - I worked 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. Then suddenly I had so much time on my hands. I found it really difficult.

Now I’ve been to see the Lion King in London, I feel like the circle is complete, it’s the end of this chapter and I’m so grateful to LOROS for helping to make this happen.

The beauty of LOROS was that they could try things out, adapt and adjust on a daily basis to make sure the treatment was correct for my father’s symptoms. My father was very comfortable and we felt so pleased he was getting the right care. I even felt a bit selfish that I felt so glad. If you can use the word enjoy about end of life care, then he enjoyed it.
