When David’s Mum was taken in to a hospice it made a huge difference. She was given the specialist care and dignity she deserved at the end of her life and her family had, in their words, the weight taken off their shoulders.

For Thelma the move from a busy hospital to the sanctuary of a hospice was pivotal; “It was such an upsetting time for Mum and you really need to feel cared for when you’re dying. In the hospice they were so friendly and they had the time to give the specialist care she needed.”

The care also extended to David; “I had a lot to deal with and I was very grateful for the support the hospice gave me. The team took the strain so I could concentrate on the person who mattered to me and that was Mum.”

David who lives in Bude, never forgot the difference the hospice made and has pledged to leave a gift to Cornwall Hospice Care in his Will; “I really appreciate the work of hospices and Cornwall Hospice Care is a local charity, which particularly caught my attention.”

“It’s so important to make a Will. Mum had and she had made arrangements for her funeral too, so I didn’t have to worry about any of that. I could spend time with her and prepare myself for her death. A Will ensures you leave your affairs in order and that your wishes are respected after you’ve gone. You can also make sure those you want remembered are acknowledged. I’ve left a gift to Cornwall Hospice Care, will you?”

Nearly a fifth of the money Cornwall Hospice Care needs to look after patients and their families, comes from legacies. It means the Cornish charity can continue to make a difference to those facing the complex symptoms of life limiting illnesses at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice in St Austell and St. Julia’s Hospice in Hayle.  

Please would you consider leaving a gift to Cornwall Hospice Care once you’ve remembered your family and friends? It could make a difference to someone you know.

Our Make A Will Week allows you the opportunity to write or update your Will thanks to participating Solicitors who are asking you to donate their fees to the charity.
