WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE MONEY YOU RAISE
Every penny that you raise helps St Joseph’s Hospice continue it’s work to support patients, like Lillian. Lillian was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer more than 9 years ago. She was receiving home visits from the Community Palliative Care Team at St Joseph’s Hospice when they recommended that she might like to come into the Day Hospice.
As Lillian’s illness progressed the Day Hospice team felt a couple of weeks of respite care might help her manage her condition. Respite is just a short term stay for a couple of weeks, where the nurses and staff on St Anne’s Ward do everything they can to ensure that the patient has everything they need.
Lillian says: “It’s like going on holiday coming to St Joseph’s. I love the company and the pleasure it gives me to be around everyone, the staff and the volunteers and other patients. They spoil you here, you get pampered and they make things happen. I’ve had respite care several times now and I really enjoy coming in. It makes me feel safe as I now live alone since my husband died.”
