Hospice Care, Everywhere!

Hospice care, everywhere!

We’re proud to announce that during the week of 6th – 12th October St Teresa’s Hospice will be adding its voice to more than 100 other hospices across the UK to explore the theme of Hospice care, everywhere for Hospice Care Week 2014.

The aim is simple: we know that hospices offer amazing support both in and outside of hospice buildings and we want to raise awareness of all aspects of hospice care to as many people as possible. During Hospice Care Week, hospices across the UK will be sharing the innovative and surprising ways that they give invaluable care to those facing end of life, and their families, in particular in settings beyond hospice buildings. Hospice Care Week provides the perfect opportunity to do this with World Hospice and Palliative Care Day taking place on Saturday 11th October. People who don’t know a lot about hospice care may be surprised that so much of it takes place in patient’s homes, or that many people are discharged from hospices after short stays so that they can live at home with support from hospice teams.

Even fewer people may know about hospice staff and volunteers going the extra mile to add life to days, the range of therapies that enrich the lives of people receiving end of life care, or the important role that hospices play in supporting and educating staff and volunteers in other settings beyond hospices, including care homes, hospitals and schools.

Between 6 and 12 October over a hundred hospices, their staff and supporters will be taking to Twitter and Facebook to spread the message about Hospice care – everywhere that it’s offered by their dedicated volunteers and staff!
