Who Cares for the Carers?

At East Cheshire Hospice, the staff provide a Hospice@Home service, giving end of life care to patients wishing to remain at home rather than enter a hospital setting, which was of course increased during the pandemic.

These nurses were often the only visitors to the isolating clients and their families throughout the entire lockdown and palliative process, thus carrying an emotional burden as well as the risk of infection, and this began to take its toll on their wellbeing.

Your donations meant a CCF grant paid for professional counselling services for those staff, helping them process a traumatic and emotional experience at work. This intervention will doubtless have saved many from burnout and kept many more in the caring profession they love, providing the support their clients so desperately need.
