Aspiring Healthcare Professionals

We’re delighted to be offering an afternoon at Jersey Hospice Care, for students in Years 11 to 13 who are interested in going into nursing, medicine and Allied Health Professions, such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists and social workers, with a particular interest in palliative care.

This afternoon will give students the opportunity to meet some of our staff, learn about their journey to becoming a healthcare professional, as well as the opportunity to learn more about Jersey Hospice Care. The afternoon will be workshop based and will be relatively informal and interactive, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions. You will also learn about opportunities to volunteer within both our clinical and non-clinical services, a first step in gaining valuable experience within a healthcare setting.

Included in the afternoon will be :

  • Welcome to Hospice
  • An overview of Jersey Hospice Care
  • The journey to becoming a healthcare professional, in whichever field you are interested in
  • A tour of Jersey Hospice Care
  • Why we need to see patients as people : #hellomynameis
  • Becoming a volunteer
  • Next steps

We’re expecting this will be a popular course, As spaces are limited to 15, we recommend you book early to avoid disappointment. We will hold a waiting list, so you can be booked onto the next course, if necessary.

Forty items in forty days – are you ready for the challenge

In the run up to Easter, each day for forty days the charity would like you to take one piece of good quality clothing, accessories, shoes or toys that you no longer love and put it in a donation bag. Then, after Easter, you can bring your donations to the various drop-off points.

Amy Taylor, Director of Finance at Jersey Hospice Care, said, ‘With Easter just around the corner, now is the perfect time for a Spring clear out. Whilst you might have fallen out of love with it, your donation could be re-loved by someone else and raise money for Jersey Hospice Care.

‘Everything we receive will be sold in our Fundraising Shops, which are a treasure trove of good quality, reasonably priced items. All the funds raised will be used to care for people in Jersey with a life limiting condition and provide support to their loved ones.’

Volunteers from Jersey Hospice Care will be out and about on King Street on Saturday 2 March and Tuesday 5 March, handing out the donation bags. You can also pick them up from the Town Fundraising Shop on 13 Union Street, Beau Pre Fundraising Shop in St Ouen and the Reception on Mont Cochon.

From Tuesday 23 April, you can drop off your donations at the following locations:

  • Romerils car park, 08:30 – 10:00 (Tuesday 23 April only)
  • Town Fundraising Shop, 13 Union Street, 10:00 – 16:00, Monday to Saturday
  • Beau Pre Fundraising Shop, St Ouen, 10:00 – 16:00. Monday to Saturday
  • Reception, Jersey Hospice Care, Mont Cochon, 08:00 – 20:00, Monday to Friday (Tuesday 23 to Friday 26 April only)

Will you ‘Sock it to Lymphoedema’ with Jersey Hospice Care?

Run by the British Lymphology Society (www.thebls.com), Lymphoedema Awareness Week runs from 3 to 9 March. This annual event seeks to raise awareness of Lymphoedema and the treatment options available.

Our Lymphoedema Service provides treatment and management for all patients experiencing cancer-related Lymphoedema. Our Lymphoedema Therapist tailors treatment to suit the patient’s needs, with emphasis on holistic assessment, self-management, education and risk reduction.

There will be an information stand in the Hospital on Tuesday 5 March, between 10:00 and 14:00 manned by our Lymphoedema Therapist for anyone who would like to find out more about the condition and how to manage it. There will also be a drop in session at Live & Learn, Jersey Hospice Care, Mont Cochon on Thursday 7 March.

On Friday 8 March, we are inviting islanders to join us in wearing odd socks or gloves to support the ‘Sock it to Lymphoedema’ campaign, to help raise awareness for the condition.

Gail Caddell, Director of Palliative Care at Jersey Hospice Care said, ‘Lymphoedema can impact a person’s body image, self-esteem and cause not only physical, but emotional distress as well. With the correct support and advice, there are things you can do to improve and treat the condition.’

Whilst this is an awareness campaign, donations can be made via our website.
