Hospice addresses SAARP

2016-03-30 06:00

KHANYA Hospice CEO, Neil McDonald, was invited by South African Association of Retired Persons (SAARP) Alexandra Club that normally meets once a month at the Umdoni Retirement Village to tell them about the work that Hospice is doing.

“We normally start with tea and coffee with some refreshments provided by the members. This is the highlight of their week for many members where they meet old friends again, make new ones and socialise. Various speakers are invited to talk to the members and sinteresting topics have come up in the past. People were absolutely astounded and did not realise what actually happens in the day-to-day life of the Hospice nursing staff,” said Stuart Ormerod, club chairman.

Ormerod asked that there be some Hospice money tins placed where people can donate funds. Anyone needing the free services of Khanya Hospice, can contact 039 973 1783 or email hospice@scottnet.co.za
