Progressive Long Term Conditions
Started by: jo anne (31626)   Report abuse
Wellbeing Experience - a project by Wigan and Leigh Hospice

Presently in the Borough there is limited palliative care support for people living with a non curative cancer or progressive long term conditions in the early stages of their condition. They often receive support and advice in the later stages when it is often too late to be of any benefit.

The Oak Centre at the Hospice will provide therapeutic interventions, advice and education workshops on all aspects of living with life limiting conditions. With the aim of enabling them to gain a high quality of life as their condition permits.

The Christmas Challenge lets you double your donation till the 'matching pot' is used up or midday Tues 5th Dec (whichever comes first).
