The reality of 2021 for Hospiscare

The reality of 2021 for Hospiscare

In the last year, so many people living with terminal conditions haven’t received the care they usually would have. The result is a large number of local people who are all much more ill now, with many sadly needing end-of-life care much sooner. “Hospiscare’s collective response to the pandemic has been the proudest moment of my working life. But we need the help of generous supporters in our local community to keep going.” – Tina Naldrett, Clinical Director and Lead Nurse

“We are quite visible in the community and we have to put PPE on outside the patient’s house before we can go in.
