SUE RYDER PHILOSOPHY OF CARE

I am walking for Sue Ryder Care, so I thought I would ask you all to take a few minutes to read a little more about the organisation. I quote from Sue Ryder Care’s website:



“Palliative care is the active total care of those with progressive, far advanced, life limiting disease.


The staff and volunteers of the Sue Ryder Care Centre, Nettlebed, give care through in patient, Day Care and community services to adult patients, their families and carers.


All patients associated with the Care Centre are recognised and treated as individuals. Careful consideration is given to the patient’s independence, self worth, dignity, comfort and peace of mind, to enhance their quality of life and affirm the life already lived. Care is also extended to the patient’s family and key helpers, both during the active phase of illness and in bereavement.


Everyone associated with giving care is expected to nurture a loving, caring and secure environment, seeking always to fulfill the physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual needs of the patient, irrespective of their race, creed, social or financial status.


All staff and volunteers are recognised as having a valuable contribution to make towards the care of patients and their families and are encouraged to work together. Mutual respect and care within the team enhances patient care.”



If you would like to now visit my Sue Ryder Sponsorship page (see the top link on the right hand side of this blog), together we can make a real difference to the next family who will need Sue Ryder’s help.

Thank you.
