Team shows support for Dying Matters Awareness Week
Posted on 14 May 2013
This week is Dying Matters Awareness Week, a positive national campaign raising awareness of dying, death and bereavement.
Pilgrims Hospices team is visiting local hospitals to allow the public and health professionals to find out more about the services it offers free of charge to patients, families and carers across east Kent.
Leading the workshops is Suzz Keith, Pilgrims education and training manager, she said: “People tend not to talk about death and dying. Those with life-limiting illness and their families can experience a great sense of isolation as a result.
“At Pilgrims Hospices we hope to empower patients to express their wishes and help them plan so they can get the most out of life. If you are a patient, supporting someone or simply interested in our work then come along to talk to us.”
