The Difference Volunteering Can Make

Bev wasn’t going to attend Day Services, and always referred to the hospice as St Pete’s and would never use the word ‘hospice’.

She was persuaded to give it a go, and Bev was picked up on her first day by a volunteer driver. Upon arriving and pulling up outside she couldn’t believe this was the hospice, and was in shock about how bright and happy everyone was. Bev has continued coming to the hospice, and has had several volunteer drivers over the weeks, all of whom give up their valuable time for free. Bev and her current driver Liz chat about anything and everything and have many laughs on both journeys.

Since losing her hair, Bev has always worn a wig and wouldn’t let anybody see her without it, that was until Lisa our volunteer hairdresser was in one Thursday. Bev decided to have her hair washed and mentioned to Lisa that she needed it coloured so Lisa popped home to collect a colour and came back to wash, colour and cut Bev’s hair. Bev left Day Services that day modelling her new hair style with her wig in her handbag – something she never thought she would do.

Bev appreciates all the support she gets at the hospice and speaks very highly of all our volunteers who have made such a difference to her. From being driven to and from the hospice, to general day services and arts & crafts volunteers, from complementary therapists to hairdressers, all give up their time for our patients. If you’d like to make a difference, please our visit our volunteer pages to find out more.

Dementia Friendly at St Peter’s Hospice

It’s National Dementia Action Week this week, 20-26 May. You might not associate a Hospice with caring for people who do not have cancer, but we also care and support many who are living with other life limiting diseases, including dementia. Last year we had over 180 patients with a dementia diagnosis referred to us and we’re working hard to ensure the services we offer to our patients are dementia friendly.

Our Clinical Community Engagement Lead, Caroline Mundy, is heading up the project. She says, “We want to improve the access to our services and be able to understand people’s individual needs. In particular we’re working to understand the needs of those without a cancer diagnosis who may have another life limiting conditions, including dementia.”

Caroline has worked for the Hospice for 14 years and has seen an increasing number of people being cared and supported by the Hospice with dementia as either a primary or secondary diagnosis. She’s been the lead for dementia care at the hospice for the last three years, writing an e-learning programme on the subject for all staff and initiating regular study days for local healthcare professionals about End of Life Dementia care.

We’re collaborating with other agencies and providers across Bristol including Bristol Dementia Action Alliance (BDAA). Tony Hall from BDAA is pictured here with Caroline. As a result more than 100 members of our staff have become Dementia Friends. Volunteers and staff in our 51 shops have also undergone training.

We’re working closely with Bristol’s Dementia Wellbeing Service and Caroline has delivered an end of life dementia care training session to its staff. In turn the organisation has provided training to hospice staff on how to improve the wellbeing of dementia patients. We’re also working with hospital dementia teams at United Hospitals Bristol and Southmead Hospital. These partnerships are incredible valuable.

“The biggest driver for us is to give the best person centred care and support we can, by working collaboratively we can share ideas and knowledge,” said Caroline.

Caroline has also set up a dementia working group at the hospice, made up of members of staff from each department to look at what improvements to dementia care can continue to be made. A special observational tool has already been implemented and is in use at the hospice to help assess patients with dementia pain and distress levels. For those who find it difficult to communicate because of the condition, staff now use patient behaviour and non-verbal actions to assess levels of pain they may be feeling.

“Staff need to be able to understand dementia, be fully equipped and trained to find the best way of communicating with these patients” said Caroline. At our new Inpatient Unit, three of our rooms are more dementia friendly with each having access to an enclosed garden as a safe space for patients to enjoy. There is also a memory box, packed full of activities for patients to enjoy, including books featuring old pictures of Bristol.

“We’re not aiming to be dementia specialists, but we want to ensure we are all empowered and enabled to give the best possible care we can. We have deep compassion for people and value each individual. Improving the quality of living and dying is vital.” said Caroline.

Committed to Diversity and Inclusion at St Peter’s Hospice

This week is Dying Matters Awareness Week, where we’ve been asking all week Are We Ready? Are We Ready for our own deaths, or the deaths of those we care about? As part of this, we’re looking at diversity and inclusion at the end of life.

One of our core aims is to provide high quality, dignified personalised care. This doesn’t mean treating everyone in the same way but rather responding to the needs and preferences of each person. Everyone truly is different. We value diversity; it is one of the unique features of the wider population of the Bristol area that we serve.

Many reports have highlighted the inequalities that some people face accessing end of life care and support. We’re proactively trying to reduce such inequalities in our area and are firmly committed to be inclusive to everyone from all backgrounds in providing support to patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

To enable us to achieve this Caroline Mundy, a nurse who has worked for the Hospice for over 14 years has recently started a new exciting 2 year role as Clinical Community Engagement Lead. Caroline worked within the Community Nurse Specialist Team for over 12 years, and more recently was part of the Hospice education team.

Caroline Mundy

Caroline is looking at how the Hospice can continually improve access and equality of access to our services. We want to ensure that what we offer and provide, supports the unique needs of our diverse communities. We are proactively taking measures to overcome challenges that might prevent people from marginalised groups receiving the end of life care they need.

Increasing our understanding is key, as well as strengthening solid partnership working with healthcare teams and local communities. Caroline’s role will enhance our community engagement, continue to develop trusted relationships and exchange information that not only will help us understand more but also effectively communicate who we are, what help and support we offer. It is a two way process, characterised by much listening.

We’re aware that some needs of non-cancer patients who have a life limiting illness, such as heart failure, respiratory disease and dementia can differ from the needs of those who have cancer. By partnering with such disease specific teams we believe will improve the care and support that is offered. Minority communities, including ethnic groups, LGBT+, people experiencing homelessness, gypsy and travellers, prisoners, people with learning disabilities are all entitled to access and the provision of high quality end of life care.

We have a deep compassion for people and value each individual. Caroline’s role provides dedicated time and focus to develop trusted relationships that we believe will enable such care to occur. We will keep you up to date with Caroline’s work on our social media channels.
