We are holding an Open Day at Jecca’s House in Aston Road, Chipping Campden, on Saturday 17th September between 11am-4pm. Tea and cake will be served.
Campden Home Nursing provides the community with a much-needed service and the aim is that Jecca’s House offers both a sanctuary and invaluable support for those with a life-limiting illness, their carers and the bereaved.
All members of the local community are invited to visit to see the facilities and to hear about our services on offer including:
• Serious Illness Support Services: At our base at Jecca’s House, the charity aims to help patients, their families and carers, live well with an advanced or terminal illness.
• Hospice Care at Home Nursing: The charity’s nurses provide a Hospice Care at Home Service for patients who would like to stay at home, in familiar surroundings in the last weeks of their life.
• Bereavement Services (Bereavement Counselling, Bereavement Support Group and Play Therapy for children 4-11 years)
Jecca’s House accommodates offices, a large drop-in kitchen for initial meetings and chats over tea and cake, a Resource Room with literature and relevant information, an Activity Room with arts and crafts resources that is a place where support groups can meet and participate in diversional therapies. The lounge gives carers a place to enjoy some respite and there is a newly-built therapeutic counselling space overlooking the beautiful garden. Also at Jecca’s House is a ‘Men in Sheds’ facility. This is a partnership with Cotswold Friends which provides a space where men (and ladies) can go to potter to meet people in a similar situation.
Helen Makaritis, Chief Executive Officer at Campden Home Nursing, said: “We aim to make Jecca’s House a welcoming and homely space where those who are in need of our services, whatever their circumstances, will feel at home and able to relax. Campden Home Nursing has been able to continue with its plans for expansion and a year on from the official opening of Jecca’s House, the charity has accomplished growth in all areas.
“We are looking forward to welcoming members of the community to Jecca’s House on our Open Day on Saturday 17th September and to show the facilities and how we can help those with life-limiting illness, their carers and the bereaved.”
