This week is Hospice Care Week, celebrating the work of hospices across the UK. Here at City Hospice, we take pride in the fact that we’ve been part of the local community for 34 years and are still going strong, helping to care for people with life limiting conditions in their own homes.
In 2017/18, we were able to make sure that 78% of people died where they wanted to, be that at home, in a hospice or in hospital, surrounded by their loved ones.
This Hospice Care Week, help us to continue supporting patients and their families across Cardiff by doing any of the following:
- Telling a friend about City Hospice
- Coming along to a fundraising event
- Sharing one of our posts on social media
- Telling us why you love City Hospice and what we’ve done to help
- Take part in our Light Up a Life campaign
- Join our City Hospice Lottery
Liz Andrews, our Chief Executive, is encouraging everyone to support Cardiff’s local hospice this Hospice Care Week. “Our team at City Hospice work tirelessly for the people of Cardiff, making sure that we’re looking after patients and families and providing the highest levels of care. Our clinical team help to ensure that patients are kept at home for as long as possible and are as comfortable as they can be. If you can support us this Hospice Care Week, please do! You’ll be helping us to continue providing our vital services and will be supporting Cardiff’s leading charity.”
A registered charity based in Cardiff, we provide medical, nursing and specialist palliative care to patients in their own homes as well as offering counselling (adults and children), welfare benefits advice and day centres with a range of activities.
