'People towards the end of their life shouldn’t have to suffer because they cannot access the one to one personal care that we can provide. Help fund a St Luke’s nurse in our 30th birthday year.'
'I recently cared for a lady named Jane who was in a lot of pain when she was admitted to the hospice. I listened to how she felt, talked to Jane about her fears, wishes and the future. This one to one time really helped me to understand how best to support her. I was able to give back some of the control and independence that she felt she had lost when I first spoke to her. Jane also became much more relaxed and was able to spend quality time with her family when they visited.’ St Luke’s senior nurse, Sophie Kiely. Click here to read more of Sophie's story
