Heart of Kent Hospice cares for more than 1,400 patients with a terminal illness, their families and loved ones each year. The ‘outstanding’*, end of life care that the Hospice provides is highly personalised. Patients choose whether they receive care and support in the comfort of their own homes, in care homes or at the Aylesford based Hospice.
The demand for Hospice services is increasing and Chief Executive Sarah Pugh is concerned that some cultures and communities within Maidstone, Aylesford, Tonbridge, Malling and the surrounding areas may not be aware of the end of life support that is available to them.
The Hospice is appealing for volunteers to form its first ever Accessibility Advisory Panel. Requiring a chair person and members, Sarah Pugh, Chief Executive says, “Heart of Kent Hospice’s Accessibility Advisory Panel will help us to ensure we can meet the needs of the diverse groups within the community we serve. We are looking forward to working with our new panel to identify local cultures and communities, understand their needs, develop relationships and put together plans for improving access to our services in the future.” She continues, “If you enjoy playing an active role in your local community and have a strong understanding of the diverse cultures and communities in Maidstone, Aylesford, Tonbridge and Malling, we would love to hear from you.”
