The support from the Community Nurses, Consultant and the Hospice at Home Team was excellent. All were professional, kind and caring and very experienced in helping not only the patient, but the whole family, with end of life care. It was a godsend to have Hospice at Home, it had been our mother's wish to be at home during her illness, and meant the world to us all. I don't believe any of the family had realised the importance of the service until now, it is invaluable.
I met up with Irene shortly after my husband's death as I felt I needed help to come to terms with the loss. The sessions gave me time and space to express my feelings and help me to begin to accept a life without Rod. I started to talk about putting into place achievable goals for the future. I know I am just beginning on this journey of living without Rod and the feelings of loss will in time subside. I am so grateful to Irene who has shown me care, compassion and understanding during the first few months following Rod's death. I cannot thank St. Peter's Hospice enough for all the support and loving care that Rod received before he died when he attended the Day Care Centre. The Doctors and Nursing Staff are truly wonderful.
