Stories from patients and their loved ones
Some of our patients and their loved ones have agreed to share their experience of the Hospice. Have a read here:
Christina Hollingsworth has secondary breast cancer. She was offered LOROS Day Therapy by her palliative care nurse but avoided it as she didn’t want to think about her cancer. Finally she attended, and didn’t regret it. Here’s another story celebrating our LOROS community for #HospiceCareWeek
At LOROS we work hard to ensure our care helps people feel sure of who they are, their likes and dislikes, and how they want to be cared for. Chris, 55, is on our Inpatient Ward and likes drawing pictures. He’s brilliant at it, and as he lies in his bed, it gives him a lot of enjoyment. His skills are even more amazing as he’s only been doing it for a couple of years.
Raising awareness of the work we do is a major challenge - share your story
We are always looking for patients, families and friends to share their experiences of LOROS to help try to dispel some of the myths surrounding hospice care. Whether you, or someone close to you, have been cared for at the hospice, or LOROS services have been provided in your home, your story could be incredibly powerful.
