Gemma Scott from Arlecdon, was referred to our clinic after suffering from intermittent leg swelling. The problem had developed gradually over time, impacting on Gemma's ability to live a normal life.
We would like to pay tribute to a long standing, dedicated member of our Clinical Team Janice Johnston, who is retiring from Hospice at Home West Cumbria after many years of dedication and commitment within our home nursing team.
We’d like to thank Anne for allowing us to share her journey with Hospice at Home West Cumbria, and for her many years of care and compassion within our Home Nursing Team.
When our Fundraising Team here at Hospice at Home West Cumbria launched an Emergency Appeal to help bridge the gap in the income due to Coronavirus, local entertainer and Hollywood actor Billy Walker leapt forward to help, and set himself a challenging target to raise £20,000 by the end of the year. No-one could have believed he could exceed that target in just 4 months!
We are proud to launch a campaign this week to highlight the work we have been doing to ensure that people with a learning disability and/or autism have access to fair, accessible and inclusive palliative, end of life and bereavement care.
