"I enjoy assessing patients on a daily basis, proving care, whether it be personal care, emotional or any other support hey need, plus with their families.
At Isabel, my fellow nurses are among the most kind, caring and compassionate people I have ever met. "
I have worked for Isabel Hospice for 6 years. I started working on the Switchboard then after a few years moved to the IT department, and finally to my job now in Family Support. I can honestly say I love my job and feel like I have my forever job!
I work as the team administrator for a Multi-disciplinary team which includes Counsellors, Social workers, Chaplaincy, Bereavement and child Services. I also do the administration for our Bereavement Coffee Morning which is run every week by volunteers to help relatives of our patients cope with their loss and spend time with people in similar circumstances.
Our work, which includes lots of volunteers, helps support patients and families coming to terms with a change in their normal lives. I feel very passionate about Isabel Hospice and what we do as a Charity. I know the services we offer make a difference to a lot of the families of our patients, we receive some lovely thank you letters. I work with a lot of amazing people and feel blessed to be part of something amazing that helps our local community.
