What hospice care is to you

John Taylor Hospice joined up to 200 other hospices across the UK as part of an annual awareness-raising event.

The sixth Hospice Care Week took place in October and this year’s theme was ‘hospice care is …”.
Patients, staff and volunteers at the Birmingham-based hospice took part by sharing photographs expressing what hospice care means to them and highlighting the varied - and often surprising - aspects of hospice care.

Louise Allen, PR and media officer at John Taylor Hospice, said: “One in three people will be touched by hospice care at some point in their lives. The care provided is immensely varied but always centred around the person, what is important to them and their loved ones.

“Here at John Taylor we’re totally dedicated to making every moment matter for everyone we care for. We really embraced Hospice Care Week and the opportunity to join our hospice colleagues in giving a collective voice to hospice care. Together we can raise awareness, change perceptions and share just how unique and special it is.”

John Taylor Hospice has been providing specialist palliative and end of life care for over 100 years and today more than 600 people and their families will receive the care they need from the hospice.
That care may involve 24-hour care at the hospice, day services, counselling and well-being and a range of specialist services including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy and complementary therapies.
