Hospice Care Week 23
East Lancashire Hospice celebrates Hospice Care Week and Wellness Week
In the world of hospice care, every day brings the opportunity to provide compassionate support to individuals and their families during life's most challenging times.
Hospice Care Week
Organised by Hospice UK, Hospice Care Week, celebrated annually in the first week of October, is a chance to celebrate hospice care nationwide, and the incredible work that is being done to make sure everyone can benefit from the services we provide. It's a chance for us to showcase what we do and the difference we make in people's lives, and to raise awareness about the importance of end-of-life care.
This year's theme focuses on the staff and volunteers who work selflessly to bring comfort and dignity to those nearing the end of life, and we’re thrilled to celebrate, recognise and appreciate all that they do.
At East Lancashire Hospice we are more than your local hospice, we are nurses, doctors, health care assistants, volunteers, cleaners, and therapists. We provide compassionate care for people with lifelong illnesses and disabilities and those at the end of their life. We support those who are left behind and are there for you when you need us the most.
In a bid to reward our staff for the work that they do, we have organised ‘Wellness Week’ a week-long event of activities which will run during Hospice Care Week to reward our staff and give them a chance to invest in their own health and well-being.
We're saying goodbye to meetings and are making our staff a priority, rewarding them with free food and drinks, facials and massages, hypnotherapy and relaxation sessions, wild therapy, individual well-being plans, foraging, health checks, anxiety workshops, Tai Chi, yoga, singing and dance lessons and a cheese and wine evening giving them a chance to unwind and refresh.
Huge thanks to all those involved in organising this special week, in particular, our Head of Wellbeing, Support & Development, Lisa Baldwin who has made this event possible. Many thanks to all the local businesses that have also supported us by donating their products and services in aid of our Wellness Week.
Hospice Care Week and Wellness Week are not just celebrations at East Lancashire Hospice, but are reflections of our ongoing commitment to providing the best possible care and support to both our patients and our dedicated staff. As we take this time to celebrate our compassionate caregivers and invest in their well-being, we are reminded that a healthy and supported team is the foundation of exceptional hospice care.
Thank you once again to our amazing staff for their dedication and compassion. Together, we will continue to help others make the most of life.
