Hospice Awareness Week 2022
16th - 22nd May 2022
Lea is the Clinical Services Manager at Nelson Tasman Hospice. In this video she talks about the support and care available to patients with a life limiting illness.
At Hospice EBOP, we have some amazing staff who are either out and about everyday helping patients and their families or the friendly voice you hear when you call the Hospice office. Below are just some of these staff and a brief outline of what they do here at Hospice EBOP.
Here at Hospice EBOP, we would not be able to do alot of what we do without our valued volunteers who donate their time on a weekly basis in a wide variety of ways, from helping out at the shops, in the furniture van, writing life stories, supporting patients' and their families or organising fundraising events. The reasons why people volunteer and the enjoyment they get from it are as varied as their roles.
Below are the stories of just 4 of our volunteers.
Here is Simon's story, whose wife Alison was a patient at Hospice in Nelson. He talks about how he was impacted by the care his wife received from Hospice and how he has gone on to support Hospice through fundraising.
