Hospice Care Week 8-14th October 2011

There can’t be many readers out there whose lives haven’t been touched by terminal illness in some way. With that in mind, I’d like to draw everyones attention to the first ever Hospice Care Week, to raise awareness of hospices like St. Giles, at Whittington, near Lichfield where I know many locals have been treated. I had a great friend who passed away in their care a few years ago, and I’ve always held a special place in my heart for the caring, essential work these largely charitable institutions perform. Please click on the image below to find out more about Hospice Care Week and St. Giles in particular. Palliative care is a hugely underfunded thing and I’ve commented on it before here on the blog.

These people need our help and support, because should we need them, they’ll be there for us.

    Hi Bob, what a wonderful thing to bring to everyones attention. As you say St.Giles and all hospices do an excellent job giving palliative care to those in need, and its a shame they have to rely so much on donations.Two friends parents who were cared for at St.Giles in their final weeks of life, couldn’t speak highly enough of the care their loved ones received and asked for donations for the hospice rather than flowers which i thought was an excellent idea.
