Lewis-Manning Hospice Care
We were delighted to support Lewis Manning Hospice, an independent hospice based in Poole that provides healthcare to people living with life-limiting conditions.
Our grant of £8,111 will ensure the hospice can continue to offer one to one support to patients over the phone whilst they are shielding.
Claire Warren, Trusts Fundraiser at Lewis-Manning Hospice Care said, "Our patients are really feeling the impact of having to stay at home all the time. They are missing their visits to the hospice and many are feeling very isolated and anxious.”
“We are receiving lots of feedback that our nursing team’s calls are the highlight of their week at the moment. It makes such a difference to them knowing someone is still there, caring for them, calling to see how they are and helping meet their needs. A patient told one of our nurses, “You are my lifeline. You are the only ones supporting us at this scary time. Thank you, thank you."
