The Mayor of Redbridge visited Saint Francis Hospice to find out more about the charity’s end of life care services that residents can benefit from.

Councillor Debbie Kaur-Thiara, visited the hospice in Broxhill Road, Havering-atte-Bower on Monday (August, 20) and was keen to learn more about Saint Francis’s new services including Hospice at Home, a specialist community and crisis support service, Specialist advice line and the Orangeline service for lonely and isolated people in the community.

Although the mayor had previously attended Saint Francis’s birthday service in July, this was her first opportunity to take a tour of the hospice, including the inpatient unit, the day services at Pemberton Place and physiotherapy and bereavement services.

Councillor Kaur-Thiara spent time with staff and patients, and continuously thanked people for the work they do.

Anne Brown, Head of major gifts, said: “We were delighted to welcome the Mayor of Redbridge to Saint Francis Hospice this week.

“Like many people who don’t have experience of Hospice care, Debbie was interested to learn the breadth of care and support we have to offer, and promised to raise awareness of these services during her mayoral year.”
