It's not easy to talk about death and families saying goodbye to their loved ones.
But it's important we do talk about it, because our Palliative Care team, which cares for people with life limiting illness, is in need of new equipment to assist staff to be able to provide the very best, compassionate care for patients and their families.
There are many pieces of equipment that can help patients maintain their dignity and give physical comfort and assistance. You can read more about this equipment here. We need to raise $72,000 to purchase this important equipment.
Will you give today to help us purchase equipment so staff can devote all their energy to providing the best care possible to people at the end of their life?
Your gift will help support the dedicated staff, and in the stress and grief of saying goodbye to their loved one, families can focus on love, time and togetherness.
