My Grandmother had cancer and was in her final stages. We really wanted her son from Switzerland to come and spend some precious times with her before she slipped away peacefully.
He was not keen in coming due to Covid-19 but once we said that the Consultant from St Luke's Hospice had given us a kit he was somewhat confident in coming and he made use of this kit when he visited. This kit included personal protective equipment (aprons, gloves, face masks), hand sanitiser, mouth sponges and information for carers. His response, "An effective and beneficial goody bag". To be honest, I think it is one of the best kits I have ever come across in terms of protection. It had everything to keep him safe from all of us. The kit was somewhat generous such as it had a big bottle of hand sanitiser. I think this kit really needs to be promoted not just to hospices but other sectors.
Thank you for giving us this kit, it really helped us as a family.
