Philip accepts help and finds good friends
Lianna Pearce looked after her Dad, Philip at home with the help and support of Mercy Hospice nurses Kelle Smith and Lucy Meldrum. She will never forget how the staff at Mercy Hospice were there for her when she needed it the most.
“The night I phoned the Hospice Out of Hours Service, I was scared it was going to be his last. I rang the Out of Hours Service and spoke to a nurse. She talked to me calmly and gave me the advice I needed to stay strong in the early morning hours.”
Please donate to the Mercy Hospice Out of Hours Service. Your donation will be used to help towards the cost of the Out of Hours Service. This phone service is used everyday, for patients and families to call when they need help. A nurse is always at the other end of the phone and doctors are also available on call.
Sadly, Philip died, after the newsletter went to print. You can read his story on the front page of the newsletter
