Alice House Hospice are starting a new service, the Carers Support Group, which will run on Wednesday evenings from 4pm – 7pm and is open to anyone who is a Carer. The first group will meet on Wednesday 27th June.
Fundraisers at Alice House Hospice are celebrating another successful summer of fun and fundraising, all in support of local patients and their families.
The summertime is one of the charity’s busiest periods and this year was no exception. The diverse programme of fundraising events included regular favourites Dogs’ Day Out, Forget-Me-Not, Colour Run, Moonlight Walk, Beer Festival, Afternoon Tea and Great North Run and a new Summer Fair, all of which were well supported.
At Alice House Hospice we recognise and understand the need for support when living at home with a life-limiting illness and that this need can come at any time.
Our 24 Hour Helpline which is staffed by specialist Nurses and Doctors provides help, support and guidance whenever it is needed. The service is available to everyone regardless of whether or not they have a connection with the Hospice.
Paula Tempest took on the new role of Clinical Lead Inpatient Services on 1st September having already worked in the clinical areas at the Hospice for 3½ years.
