Year of the Nurse – Natalie

2020 has been named by the World Health Organisation as the ‘International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife’ in honour of what would have been Florence Nightingale’s 200th birthday.

At Havens Hospices our nurses help provide vital care for families across Essex when they need us most, so throughout the year we wanted to share the story of the nurses who are ‘Making every day count’ for the children and adults we care for.

Natalie has been part of the Hospice at Home Team for over three years, after her Dad was cared by Hospice at Home for the last few weeks of his life. In March 2019 Natalie took on the new role of Senior Nursing Assistant.

She said, “I  joined the team after experiencing their care first hand because they inspired me so much. In 2016 my Dad was cared for by Hospice at Home, this is what inspired me to branch out from the job I had in care already and join the team as soon as I could.”

“It’s very rewarding helping   patients and their families through their last journey. We get the chance to help our patients die where they would like to and help make sure that it is as peaceful and happy as it can be.”
