Nursing staff often find patients alone and sick at home with no one to care for them. They also find that there are just not enough means to keep them warm and comfortable, and Hospice staff and volunteers have been crocheting and knitting, not waiting for handouts. “We must also give to be able to receive,” said Neil MacDonald, CEO of Khanya Hospice. “There are wonderful people who support Khanya Hospice and the free palliative nursing care that it offers - a big thank you to them,” he said. Khanya Hospice provides free palliative nursing care from Umkomaas to Hibberdene and can be contacted on 083 597 8985 or hospice @scottnet.co.za - Supplied.
