Charitable Trust funds complementary therapy sessions in patients homes


St Luke’s is very grateful to the Trustees of the Paul Daisley Charitable Trust for generously supporting the hospice for many years. The Trust is funding complementary and physiotherapy sessions for patients in their own homes and each therapy is tailored to the individual’s own needs. These sessions provide our patients with an enhanced quality of life and improved well being by relieving breathing difficulties, pain and discomfort. It also has a positive impact on their mobility issues, anxiety, loss of confidence, insomnia, nausea and spiritual needs.

In 2016/17 The “Paul Daisley” project has improved symptom control and well being to patients in their own homes through provision of 118 home visits.

The Paul Daisley Trust was established after the death of Paul Daisley from colon cancer
at the age of 45. It works to raise awareness of bowel cancer and helps seriously ill people
remain in their own homes. It provides valuable support to cancer charities and hospices,
providing information, equipment and home physiotherapy and complementary therapy
