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...

LOROS did everything they could to make sure Mum was comfortable and cared for during her final days. She died, peacefully. It was the best death she could have had and we felt very comforted and supported.
