The inpatient unit has 24/7 assessment in a comfortable and warm environment.

Watch: What’s it like inside a Sue Ryder hospice?

They just have time there. Even when they are busy, they don’t seem it and they don’t make you think this is just another job. Christine was actually at St John’s for seven weeks in the end and I think that is down to the care they gave her. It was just the little touches.
