The Good Morning Britain host, 53, shared a video on Instagram of her family taking part in the 10th round of applause in the Clap for Carers campaign.
What did Kate say?
"[I] hear this might be the last Clap for Carers," she wrote in the video's caption. "So [my son] Billy thought we should get the drums out to go out in style!
"It's been such a source of weekly comfort for them and me. I must admit I felt the tears come tonight to think it's coming to an end before Derek's ordeal with us...
Every one of them is fighting as hard as Derek.
"But whether we clap or not next Thursday, my eternal thanks to all in the #NHS goes on.
"They are keeping Derek alive and every one of them is fighting as hard as Derek to give us the chance to be reunited.
"Hope has to keep us all going, doesn't it? I am having to find new ways of staying strong every day for Darcey and Billy, as I know Derek would want me to.
"It's not easy but when I think of how hard Derek is fighting and the bravery of all in the #nhs, it helps.
"Thanks so much for all your messages and thanks for sharing on club Garraway.com. Standing together and learning from each other has to get us all through. #hope #love #clapthecarers #wherethereslifethereshope."
