Staff at the Marie Curie Hospice in Solihull are inviting people living locally to share their questions, thoughts and anxieties about hospice care at an open afternoon on Friday May 20, as part of Dying Matters Week (May 16-22).
Everyone is invited to drop in between 1.30 and 4.30 pm to talk to staff at the hospice – as well as representatives from the Solihull Macmillan Team, Freshwinds, Acorns Hospice and AgeUK – about any aspect of hospice care.
Liz Cottier, Manager of the Marie Curie Hospice, Solihull, said: “Many people don’t give a second thought to what goes on in a hospice until circumstances force them to, and this can cause anxiety and misconceptions. People who are familiar with our care and understand the role of our staff are much better placed to cope with the issues that arise when they or a loved one needs to come to the hospice.
“This is an opportunity to pop in to meet us and talk through any fears or concerns people may have. Visitors to the hospice often leave pleasantly surprised and with their fears allayed.”
Anyone wanting information about services available at the Marie Curie Hospice in Solihull, and how they or a loved one can access these, can call Jennifer Brewer on 0121 254 7800 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
