Are you curious about what hospices are like? Ever thought about the role a hospice plays when a loved one is approaching end of life?
Some of us are already aware of the positive power a hospice can play in our lives, as they care for our loved ones at they end of their lives. For some however, it is the last place they could ever want to be. We’ve heard how people want to avoid hospices as they won’t feel comfortable, or they want to be with family where they will get the care they need. It is a tough subject to talk about but that means it is something which needs to be spoken about more.
We have already begun this conversation on our podcast, Carers Talk, when we spoke with Hazel Carter about her experiences with Marie Curie hospice after her husband was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. Now, Hazel continues her work by offering her time and experiences to those who are following in her footsteps and need advice on whether a hospice is the best choice for their needs.
Hazel will be speaking with representatives of Marie Curie Hospice Solihull and you are welcome to attend. It is a free event but booking is required as seats are limited. When you join you will have the opportunity to ask questions to Hazel, Marie Curie representatives and other speakers. You can meet some of the hospice staff, view the support and wellbeing hub, explore the beautiful hospice gardens, and enjoy some refreshments from the hospice café.
When: Tuesday 12th September 5:30 – 7:30pm
Where: Marie Curie Hospice, Marsh Lane, Solihull, B91 2PQ
