Jacky Smith, patient diary

Jacky Smith is 49 and living with MND. Jacky writes about her hospice care.

A gentle helping hand just when it’s needed.

Hospice have joint care with the community services like the GP, physio etc.

Today I’ve had a one stop shop to all the services.  I saw the physio about equipment and exercises. I saw the Doctor who took a blood test I needed and gave clear sound advice, listened and reassured. For oral care I saw the aromatherapist for an initial consultation. All my issues addressed at once.  There was also a pre-dinner drink of a Guinness straight down the PEG and I had a quick chat with the chaplain.  A very productive day.  I feel so much more settled after today.  Thank you st Richard’s.
