Update from our Chief Executive

Looking back can help us move forward

Since the last update I wrote for Hospice News, I have been confirmed in post as Chief Executive on a permanent basis. I am so pleased to be continuing to work alongside our nurses, staff, volunteers and of course you, our wonderful supporters.

This edition of Hospice News focuses on the importance of remembering loved ones, and the many ways in which we support people to do that. Jackie’s story demonstrates just how important remembering someone can be in helping us find a way to navigate loss, adjust to change and to come together as a community.

Remembrance Ribbons are the latest addition to the many ways in which you can celebrate the life of someone close to you.

“We often talk about patient choice but having a choice in how you remember your loved one is incredibly important too.”

Living Well Creative Arts

Welcome to Living Well

Living Well is the new name for the former Hospice Day Service which we have given a new title to better reflect the type of support we are offering to those living with terminal illness.

Patients and their loved ones can work with our staff and volunteers to develop a 12-week, personalised programme. This includes processing the implications of diagnosis and setting goals, which can be hugely beneficial in helping those who may feel disempowered or overwhelmed regain some control over their lives.

A range of activities and complementary therapies are on offer, in a COVID-safe environment, providing an escape from hospital appointments and giving patients time to process all that is going on in their lives.

Steph Hall, who joined the Hospice in January as Head of Living Well, said:
“We are looking forward to seeing patients in person to help them develop programmes tailored to their needs and goals. These will be offered alongside the continued virtual support groups.

We’ll also be inviting people to focus groups to find out what will best help them.”
