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.
