I spent some time with my son in palliative care. Jaden was a young man with some learning difficulties so when cancer took over his life he really needed me to be there with him. People wanted to help and one of the most practical things they did was to prepare home cooked meals and deliver them to us at home and then at the hospital.
This was a great help to me not only the food but the contact with people it created for both Jaden and me.
So on 15 July with the help of my family we joined in and made morning tea for the staff and families at the palliative care unit. It really brought people together and created a vibe in the common room.
This wonderful concept brings people together
Thanks to the team for kicking it off and for keeping it going
A conversation can make a difference in helping someone feel less alone and more supported in recovering from anxiety and depression. Don’t underestimate the importance of just ‘being there’.
