BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, London hosted a seminar on Sunday 25 November 2012 entitled ‘Welfare for the Elderly’ where St Luke’s Hospice, the local hospice for the boroughs of Harrow and Brent, provided information about the services that it offers for the elderly.
Welfare for the elderly is an important concern for the Mandir, who recently invited residents from Birchwood Grange Nursing Home for a special event in October.
Chandni Shah, a volunteer community ambassador from St Luke’s Hospice, explained how a hospice helps patients with cancer. Specific services offered at St Luke’s, which are all free of charge, were outlined in detail, including the way in which the hospice cares for people whose illnesses are no longer curable, enabling them to achieve the best possible quality of life during the final stages of their illness.
Ms Shah outlined that patients are looked after in the In-Patient Unit, Out-Patient Clinic, and Day Care Unit, as well as in their own homes through the Hospice at Home and Community Palliative Care Teams.
The session provided some important information and answered a number of questions about the hospice. Delegates commented on how “useful and informative” the session was, and expressed that they were “very pleased to learn about the extent of care offered by a hospice.”
