Nottinghamshire Hospice and Beaumond House Hospice Care have united to ask the people of Nottinghamshire and Newark and Sherwood to commit to supporting their local hospices now and in future.
The pandemic has revealed a growing need for hospice care services across the country. We at Nottinghamshire Hospice, and our partner hospice Beaumond House, have responded with resilience and a determination to provide our communities with the support they need and rightly deserve, despite the challenges we’ve faced.
Covid-19 denied many people dignity in death but our hospices remained with patients and their families throughout.
Helping people to remain at home with their loved ones
On receiving a diagnosis of terminal cancer, Ian, a Newark resident for nearly 50 years, determined that he would like to spend his remaining days in his beloved home. Nottinghamshire Hospice and Beaumond House were able to help the family fulfil those wishes.
Ian’s daughter Emily said: “That such care was available in the community came as a surprise to the family and every agency worked holistically to ensure it was given in a timely and respectful manner. The whole approach was seamless; both hospices worked in parallel with one aim in mind – to make our father as comfortable as possible and as such the degree of emotional comfort this provided for the family cannot be understated.”
