Support Groups

We thought who better to describe our Support Groups than those themselves. Nuneaton Support Group When I heard about the Mayor’s Appeal for a Hospice back in 1987 I decided to organise a barn dance, which raised £450.00. I was invited by Bill Olner to visit the Town Hall to present him with the cheque. Little did I know that that was the beginning of my 28 years involvement with the Mary Ann Evans Hospice. I have now been the chairman of the Nuneaton Support Group for 25 years and our small but very committed group have since been...

Chaplaincy & Spiritual Care

Chaplain, Gill Hancock, Reflects on the value of Spiritual Care: Using the word ‘spiritual care’ can automatically provoke a barrier for many people who think they are going to be got at by the God squad! During a patient’s journey of dealing with illness or impending death, their most significant and immediate spiritual need changes with time according to their circumstances, mood and level of awareness of their prognosis.
