"I've been made to feel so welcome here"
“I came to the Living Well Centre for a 6-week Strength and Balance Course, and I’ve now moved on to Reiki. I’ve been for some sessions with the team.
Rachel (one of our Living Well Centre Health Care Assistants) has ‘magic hands’! After a session, I feel calm, peaceful and rested. It’s a nice experience. The staff are wonderful here.
I look forward to coming to the Living Well Centre.
I’ve spent time with Sam (Family Support Team Worker), Jenny (Physiotherapist), Joanne (Staff Nurse) and Rachel (Healthcare Assistant) when I’ve been here, as well as having some good chats with volunteers who help in the Living Well Centre too.
I’d say to anyone who is thinking about coming along to the Hospice to not be afraid to come, I would encourage people to come. Everyone is so lovely and you are made to feel welcome here.”
Rachel one of our Health Care Assistants tells us:
“Our Living Well Centre offers complementary therapies such as Reiki to our guests. When they attend the Hospice for a Reiki treatment, they are greeted by one of our team and shown to one of our treatment rooms. The lights will be dimmed, and we have a lovely warm heated blanket on our therapy bed waiting for them, to make you feel cosy and warm. We’ll play some relaxing music and we also have an amazing star projector which shines little twinkly lights like stars onto the ceiling in the room.”
This week we have launched our Power Up! Appeal, helping us to raise £100,000 to help us to continue to offer our special kind of care to people like Maureen.
