Renee was referred by the Community Palliative Team and has been supported at home by the Fair Havens Hospice at Home Team. As well as helping with medication and personal care, the Nursing Assistants have been a great source of companionship for Renee, even helping prepare her to virtually attend her granddaughter’s wedding via videocall.
Renee says, “Having Hospice at Home come in and support me has been amazing. Their visits have allowed me to stay at home and spend time with my family, and prevented me from going into hospital.
“It’s lovely to see the team. They help with my personal care and get me ready for the day. They have made sad times into special times by helping me get dressed up for my granddaughter’s wedding which I couldn’t attend. They will take me out for walks in my wheelchair, just around the close where I live, or into the garden to feed my fish.
“Fair Havens Hospice at Home has made such a difference to my life, as I’m now able to do more things on my own.”
Renee’s condition has stabilised so doesn’t need as much care from the team now but is so grateful for everything Hospice at Home has done for her, and her family.
