Community Palliative Care Nurses will be supporting Dying Matters Week which runs from 14 – 20 May 2018 with a drop-in event.
If you would like more information about the specialist community palliative care team, come along to their drop in session at Coventry Central Library in Smithford Way (CV1 1FY) between 1.00pm and 4.00pm on Monday 14 May 2018.
Palliative care is for people with an advanced progressive illness. The team provide nursing, medical, therapy and psychology support to patients and their families with complex palliative care needs, in their home or care home.
Debbie Nash, Head of Specialist Palliative Care at Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust, said: “We want Dying Matters Week to be about people in Coventry, whether that is those suffering from terminal illness or their families and friends. We feel that a drop-in session at a central location will give people an opportunity to talk to us and ask questions. We work closely with other organisations in the city, including University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire and Myton Hospice to give joined up care in the latter stages of a person’s life.
“We would love to welcome as many people as possible to our drop in session and to be able to signpost them to the support available to them in Coventry.”
