The national awareness week ends on Sunday.
Today marks the start of the sixth annual Hospice Care Week.
The nationwide initiative is organised by Hospice UK to raise the profile of hospice care.
This year the theme is ‘Hospice care is…’, to highlight the many and varied aspects of the care hospices provide, and what it can mean to people, their families and the community.
As always, St Andrew’s is taking part by posting articles throughout the week on this website and sharing messages on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

With your help, we can bust these and other myths during Hospice Care Week. Look out for the hashtag #HospiceCareWeek on social media and get sharing!
