My father was always a private person whose Christian beliefs and attitudes had given him strength and comfort throughout his life. He came to live with me (his daughter) at the age of 90 to spend his remaining years in the peace of the English countryside. Sadly he was unfortunate enough to be afflicted with oesophageal cancer in his twilight years but would ask for nothing from others or wish to be a burden to them despite the pain and suffering he experienced in his last few months.
It was therefore a fitting end for him to be able to pass away peacefully with his family in the peace and comfort of the home that he loved rather than to be transferred to an unfamiliar and impersonal hospital environment. This could never have been possible without the support of the Campden Area Home Nursing Trust and the kindness, respect and unswerving care of the individual carers not only to make his remaining life as calm and peaceful as possible and allow him to pass away with the dignity that should naturally be afforded to such a reserved and private individual, but also to provide much appreciated support and respite to me in caring for him throughout this time.
Campden Home Nursing is a model approach to providing much appreciated palliative support and dedicated care for those in their last months of life and enable their spouses/families to continue to care for their loved ones in the familiar surroundings of their homes… something we would all wish for ourselves when our time comes.
So much is given by the professional network of the Campden Home Nursing and their dedicated carers: financial contributions in return are vital to ensure this worthy cause is able to continue to support those like my father who truly appreciated their exemplary care and kindness.
re: her Father
Campden Home Nursing came to our family’s rescue just when we were being unable to cope with our uncle’s health deteriorating to the point where we were really struggling. We were recommended to talk to Campden Home Nursing by the Doctor and District nurse team at the GP surgery. The care and attention given was exemplary and just as importantly their ability to coordinate with other agencies (such as the Home Care team, the NHS services and the GP) means that our uncle and the family had support for 24 hours a day for as long as it was needed.
I cannot recommend Campden Home Nursing enough. Without their help we were being stretched and their input saved our uncle and us from what could have been a very difficult time.
re: his uncle
It is two months since my husband died. He so much looked forward to your lovely nursing team coming to do the night shift. They were so kind, reassuring and considerate.
Thank you so very much for all your kindness during my sister’s last days. Thank you for all your kind words, I cannot say how much they helped – it is beyond the written word. You all do sterling work and deserves every praise I can think of.
Thank you for the care and comfort shown to ** and myself the two nights that H@H were with us. It helped so much to have someone there with us at that time.
Re her husband
Once again, many thanks to all the Home Nursing team who helped us to allow Dad to die comfortably and peacefully in his house.
Everyone was delightful, kind and professional.
Just to say the care we have had has been outstanding in all areas of care. All of the nurses who attended my mother were very loving. The service you provide is outstanding.
We were very pleased with the support received at a very difficult and emotional journeys end.
Thank you for your service to all who need you at a very difficult time in their hour of need.
There was good communication, reliability and duty of care for our Mum. We had good feedback regarding Mum at all times and good family support too.
The Hospice at Home Service was the best I could have hoped for.
The overnight nursing was an absolute Godsend as I was so so tired and exhausted that it enabled me to recharge ready to care throughout the following day.
I have the utmost respect for all members of staff at every level. We felt supported, safe, understood and cared for.
My sister and I were so grateful of everything offered by yourselves. I would recommend you to anyone wanting help and support.
