Compleat Support for East Lancashire Hospice
You may remember The Compleat Food Group raised an incredible £1700 during the Clitheroe Food Festival earlier this year on behalf of Carole Ellis from Langho who was receiving support and care from East Lancashire Hospice whilst at home.
Laura Chadwick, Human Resources manager for The Compleat Food Group said at the time: “My grandmother was ill during the festival and was receiving care from Hospice At Home - the service offered by East Lancashire Hospice which allows patients to remain at home rather than in a hospital environment. We were grateful that my Grandma could stay at home - we live just a few doors from her and the hospice supporting her care at home meant that we were all close by."
Since then the family have continued to raise funds on behalf of the hospice in memory of Carole Ellis and this week dropped by to donate a further cheque, this time for an astounding £1680.
Carole's daughters, Sarah Brown and Rachael Chadwick, came in with Carole's husband Michael Ellis to say thank you once again for the care and support Carole received until she passed away on 5th August this year. They commented whilst they were here on the care and compassion given by the East Lancashire Hospice Clinical Nurse Specialist ,who came to their home to look after Carole.
Our Community Service consists of hospice clinical nurse specialists, supportive care (hospice at home) coordinators, health care assistants and volunteers. The team visit you in your own home to complement the care and support that you already receive from your GP, district nurses and other health and social care services.
East Lancashire Hospice at Home service allows patients to remain in the comfort of their home and with their families rather than in a hospital or the hospice itself, allowing residents of the Ribble Valley, Hyndburn, Blackburn and Darwen to receive the same level of support as they would receive in the hospice environment.
