After being diagnosed with gallbladder cancer, Jean was cared for at home by Rennie Grove Hospice at Home Team during her last three months.

Jean’s daughter, Libby told us, “Mum was adamant she wanted to stay at home, but it was hard work for us to keep her there. She was getting frustrated, because she didn’t want Dad, me, or my sisters, to care for her. It was a relief for Mum when the Rennie Grove Hospice at Home Team came in, as she knew it took the pressure off us.

“It was a huge help for Dad, too, as he could just call if he was worried about Mum. A couple of times it looked like she was in a lot of pain, so he rang the Rennie Grove Hospice at Home Team, and they always came quickly. It was such a relief for us that her pain was being managed.
“The nurses and carers who looked after her were so helpful and genuine.“We feel so grateful that Mum was looked after so well in the last few weeks of her life.”

Money raised from The Hospice Lottery helps Rennie Grove Hospice fund services that provide essential care for those in need.
