Together we can Open Up Hospice Care

Monday 4 March 2019

Open Up Hospice Care logoThis month, St Barnabas House has joined forces with Hospice UK to support a new nationwide awareness and fundraising campaign – Open Up Hospice Care – which runs from 4 to 29 March 2019.

Together with hospices across the country, St Barnabas House will be taking to social media throughout the campaign to Open Up about the extraordinary range of care the hospice delivers beyond its In-patient Unit, including in people’s homes and out in the community.

Here is a video we have produced to introduce the campaign.

The campaign aims to address some of the common misconceptions and fears that many people have about hospice care, raising awareness that hospice care is so much more than a building where you go to die. In fact, most hospice care happens in the community and in people’s homes.

Supporters will be able to access videos, interviews, photographs and patient stories on the St Barnabas House Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages which will give an insight into care services including occupational therapy, bereavement support and art therapy as well as volunteer led services such as Community Companions who support patients in their own homes.

You can help to Open Up Hospice Care by liking and sharing our posts on your own social media, using the hashtag #OpenUpHospiceCare
