“Joining the hospice is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I can’t imagine working anywhere else, it’s a very special place to be and to work.”

 “Many people have said it must be very sad to work at the hospice, which it can be, but it is also the most uplifting and positive place that I have ever worked.”

 “I wouldn’t change my job for the world. Being able to continue supporting people during difficult times in their lives, has been one of the most rewarding and proudest moments in my career.”

 “People often assume working at the hospice is dark, gloomy and sad, but this is not the case. We work with the living and help make a difference to people during very difficult times in their lives. It is a real privilege to be a part of an organisation that provides this special care and I have felt this same feeling ever since I joined.”
