Jessie May Children’s Hospice at Home is a charity that provides exceptional palliative care and support to children with life-limiting conditions, and their families, in their own homes. The charity is proud to announce the launch of their Sponsor a Nurse scheme that will support the Jessie May nursing team.
Jessie May nurses provide palliative care throughout a child’s life, extending their support to provide bereavement care for families following the death of a child.
Kim James-Coggins is Head of Partnerships for Jessie May and is pleased to be able to launch Sponsor a Nurse as part of the new set pf partnerships packages;
“Today our team of nurses delivering care in the home stands at 16, to fund just 1 of them costs from 41,000 each year. Each nurse supports around 15 families so by sponsoring a nurse, that will be 15 families receiving the best care and support in their own home. For our families, the support they receive is priceless and we want to ensure no family who needs us misses out.”
CEO of Jessie May, Daniel Cheesman is delighted to see the launch following months of planning;
“We hope that by highlighting the work of our specialist nurses, more individuals and organisations will pledge to support us and our work. The lives of Jessie May children may be short but that doesn’t mean that their quality of life is any less important. Our aim is to ensure that Jessie May nurses are there for every family that needs us in their home.”
