"Attending the hospice has enhanced my life beyond words"

About: John Eastwood Hospice, day care/in care

(as a service user),

Although I was very unsure of coming to the hospice it’s one of the best things I have done. I cannot praise all the staff enough, not only the workers but all the volunteers for making me feel so welcome. I feel very supported and any issues I have are dealt with to their fullest capability.

Just to mention a few of the activities available – card making, cooking/baking, scarf making and one of my favourites which is water colour painting.

Attending the hospice has enhanced my life beyond words can express, as soon as I walk in that door my mood lifts and I feel alive again, I miss not going and it would be fantastic to come back, I would love to come more than once a week but I understand this would not be possible.

Response from Emma Roberts, Head of Specialist Palliative Services, John Eastwood Hospice and Bassetlaw Hospice, County Health Partnerships

Thank you very much for your posting.

The team at the hospice work together to ensure everyone who enters our service gets the most they can and hopefully gives something that can be drawn on when you are not within the building. I will share your kind words with the team.

If you feel you would benefit from a further program of care please speak to your doctor or other health professional

Thank you Emma
