Heather’s Story

Ordinary people doing extraordinary things


Heather was a school teacher a role she carried out until she retired. Heather and her late husband Keith were married for 65 years.

“We were extremely grateful for the care Keith received the nurses all treated Keith so kindly and lovingly as if he was their own family. Keith wanted to die at home and because of the hospice he was able to achieve his final wish.

“Because of all the care and support we received, and because we know the hospice supports so many families, I decided I would leave the hospice a gift in my Will, so that other people may receive the same supportive care.”

How a gift in your Will can help

Your support can help our community team to provide round the clock care, every day of the year.

Our community nursing team are always on hand to care for people who wish to spend their final days at home.

We also offer patients and their families a 24 hour advice line OneCall, which is staffed by trained professionals all year round to offer specialist palliative advice.

This service has grown to include patients with progressive and terminal illnesses in the Great Yarmouth and Waveney area.
