Peace Hospice Care - Pete's Story
There is a long-held myth that hospices are places people come to die. Peace Hospice Care provides end of life care but much of our work is in the community and supporting patients through outpatient services (from meditation and yoga to exercise classes and creative arts) to achieve the best quality of life possible – helping them to manage their condition.
The services and support we provide, and the impact they have, are best explained by the patients and families who can speak from their own personal experience. This is Pete's story - Pete Walsh was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2014 and he has attended a number of courses and groups to support him in his wellbeing.
The aims of this film were to:
- help people understand that hospice care is about empowering patients and their families – helping them to live the best quality of life possible for them
- demonstrate to supporters that what we do makes a difference, and to encourage them to continue to support us
The film is on our website and we also use it at events – and people are always genuinely touched to hear Pete’s story.
