“When I first visited the hospice I was scared of what I was coming into. Everyone did a fantastic job and gave my dad the care he needed.
“The hospice helped me so much, if it wasn’t for the staff I couldn’t have got through losing my dad.
"The support they gave me was fantastic. A counsellor would phoned me and asked if I was OK, and how my day was, and the support from all the nurses gave was wonderful.
“The hospice gives you the help you need and the care you want. The nurses were really good with my dad, and they tried to accommodate me and my mum, as well as all the family when they came to visit.
"It wasn’t just about my dad, it was about us too.
"The Butterfly Room is used to support younger children who have lost someone or who have a loved one in the hospice.
"It makes you feel more relaxed to know there are people you can speak to.
The help I received made me develop as a person and realise I have a lot more confidence to speak about my dad and his illness.
