We’re making an impact
Today we launch our Impact Report 2016/17 showing what we have achieved over the past year and looking ahead to some of our plans for the future.
Our focus as ever is on the patient so what better way to tell the story of the past year than through the eyes of Mary, one of our patients?
Mary is relatively new to the hospice but in the short time since she was referred to us she has had respite care, been to day hospice, had a range of complementary therapies and had a home visit from one of our Community Palliative Care Team.
She also helped to make some of the carnival costumes for Hackney Carnival and took her seat on the Carnival bus!
Today also marks the beginning of Hospice Care Week and this year’s theme is ‘We are hospice care’. These few words really sum up St Joseph’s and we are proud to do our bit to help raise awareness of the wonderful work of all the hospices.
During Hospice Care Week you will meet some of the people in our Impact Report and find out more about what we do at St Joseph’s Hospice and how you can help us.
We think some of it may surprise you!
