Tad was able to spend the last few weeks of his life at home with his family, thanks to the support that he and his family received from Rennie Grove Hospice Care.

Rennie Grove Hospice Care’s nurses cared for Tad and supported his family as his health deteriorated. Tad’s wife Ethne said: “You knew that when a Rennie Grove nurse was coming you were getting somebody who really knew what they were doing. You felt a great sense of relief that they were on their way and you knew that when they came they would be able to cope marvellously.

Rennie Grove’s nurses cared for Tad at home for three weeks before he died. Our sons and daughters were frequent visitors – often staying overnight – and we felt very lucky that he was able to spend time with all the family while he was at home.

“The whole family were so impressed by the nurses and the care and support they provided to Tad and all of us. They are experts that have time to care and give their patients the attention they need.”
