It’s more than two years since the pandemic hit, and here at LOROS we’re still feeling the effects.
To make the Hospice a safer place, we had to make many changes to how we cared for our patients. Visitors to the Hospice and the Ward were restricted, and our Day Therapy sessions moved to online. We did everything we possibly could to keep our patients and staff safe. Our nurses became like family to our patients, soothing, engaging and cheering them up when they were unable to see their loved ones.
Katie Sherratt has worked as a nurse at LOROS since 2019, just before the pandemic. During that time, she has nursed patients on the Inpatient Ward and supported them in Day Therapy. She’s been here throughout the pandemic, even using her days off to support the vaccination programme at Leicester Hospitals.
Katie tells us what these past two years have been like as a nurse on the frontline, and how she and her team worked tirelessly to make patients feel loved and cared for in these extraordinary times. By playing our Spring into Summer Raffle you’ll be helping patients and their families through the most devastating time of their lives. With your support, we will be here no matter what the future holds.
Thank you from all of us at LOROS x
I support LOROS Hospice by playing the raffle every year. To win just before Christmas was an amazing surprise! My family have benefited from counselling services provided by LOROS. I think the Hospice does wonderful work for local people and the community - this is why I continue to support.Read Graham's story
