Thames Hospice is the local charity providing expert care for people living with life-limiting illnesses in East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire. A vital part of their work is also supporting their families and carers.
They care for the physical, social and psychological needs of patients, not just the condition. They're a highly skilled medical team which work with the patient, their family and carers, to develop a complete programme of care tailored to their individual needs.
Their services include therapy, nursing and medical care, as well as practical and emotional support in the Hospice at Windsor and in patients' homes.
It costs £8 million every year to keep the Hospice running, so therefore rely on the community for over 50% of the funds they have to raise annually to provide services free of charge, 365 days a year, to the people who need them.
My husband (Con) was cared for by Thames Hospice for his last 12 days of his life. I cannot express how amazing and outstanding the members of staff were and the continued support we have received as a family. By creating and wearing one of these gorgeous elephant bracelets you’ll be giving something back, thank you.
Elephants symbolise, strength, wisdom and good luck.
Elephants never forget, never forget how strong you are!
While blue conjures up images of the sky and the sea, it’s also the colour of bravery and dedication.
