JOCELYN, a retired graphic artist, was in the care of the Hospice’s Wellington Community team, both in her own home as well at our Newtown facility. Jocelyn explained, “When I first went into the In-Patient Unit I could not eat. Jon in Hospitality came around every day and he’d sit at the end of my bed with the next day’s menu. Even if I didn’t like anything he was very patient and would always say: ‘Well, would you like to try this, or that’ – and he got me eating again.”
“I had been in a lot of pain over the last few days from the radiation treatment. The pain just would not go away – you have no idea what the pain was like. I rang the Hospice at 3am and the doctor talked me through my medications and what to do and made it go away so I could get a good night’s sleep. The Hospice has been fantastic and I cannot thank them enough,” she said. After her experience with Mary Potter Hospice Jocelyn decided to leave a bequest in her Will. She said she wanted others to have the same quality of care as she enjoyed.
