In South Africa, where I come from, Hospices are just places to go and die. When my specialist lung nurse suggested Isabel Hospice I wasn't keen, as I didn't think I was ready to die!
It took me a lot of courage to come along to the Living Well sessions in Bishop's Stortford because of that. Now I'm here, I am so pleased I came. I get supported emotionally and medically. I'm making memory boxes for my husband and my parents and I really enjoy my Thursdays now. My husband can see my mood is low if for any reason I can't go along.
I'd definitely recommend Isabel Hospice to anyone. It's helping me live my life more fully.
