A Message from Becky Franks - Director of Patient Care
For our Winter Raffle we are sharing with you what a positive impact your entry will make to your loved ones and friends in your own community.
We have ambitious plans to care for more people in their own homes and in specialist units, but this will not be possible without your help. We are experiencing spiraling costs of running our Inpatient Unit, Wellbeing Centres and Hospice at Home care.
It may surprise you to know that the care that we provide is not wholly funded through the NHS, and thousands of people miss out on a dignified, peaceful death each year. We need to fundraise over £7 million pounds each year to provide people with compassionate care; every year even more terminally ill people need our help.
Our nurses and therapist see the benefits of care being given at home in the final weeks and days of a patient’s life. Not only are patients more relaxed, but loved ones can be there with them and are supported too. Our team work incredibly hard to ensure patients and their family feel as comfortable and supported as possible, managing physical and psychological issues, and taking the pressure off family members, who in so many cases have become carers themselves.
Thank you for your support!
