"Since attending this hospice, my outlook has changed."

About: John Eastwood Hospice, day care/in care

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

Before I attended this hospice, I was vegetating at home doing nothing but sit in my chair twenty hours a day.

Since attending this hospice, my outlook has changed. I do more work with my wife - gardening, cooking, shopping etc. I am beginning to get my life into some sort of order.

The staff are fantastic - anything you want to know or do is no bother to them. My six attendances have completely changed my outlook. It has been a joy to attend.
