A special message
Our Autumn issue of Pilgrims Matters has all the latest on a new service Pilgrims has launched to help people with a life limiting illness to access the support they need earlier is set to launch across east Kent.
The Wellbeing and Social Programme is free for anyone in the later stages of a life limiting illness and aims to enhance their wellbeing in mind and body.
Cate Russell, Pilgrims Hospices Chief Executive, said: “Most people know about the care Pilgrims nurses and specialists offer 24/7 to patients on our wards – as a team we do all we can to ‘go the extra mile’ for those who need us. While the ward may traditionally be at the heart of the hospice, in truth it is the very tip of the iceberg of the support we offer.
When someone is referred to Pilgrims Therapy Centres, a whole team of health and wellbeing professionals will be involved in crafting an ideal care programme so that person and their family have the right support for them.
“The Wellbeing Programme is here to support people with a terminal diagnosis earlier in their journey stay independent, improve symptoms and to support them emotionally so they can live each day well. Services are also available for carers – be they friends or family – to support them too with self-care and in their role as a carer. We want to increase the number of people benefit from these valuable services.”
This will be our most diverse and extensive outpatient programme to date.
