Lavender Hills have created and donated crochet hearts to the End of Life and Bereavement Team at East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust.
Following a January appeal from members of the End of Life and Bereavement Team, based at Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital, staff and residents at Lavender Hills Care Home have spent the start of 2023 crocheting wool hearts for patients and their families.
Donating 30 packs, each pack contains two crochet hearts and a poem from the home. One heart remains with the patient while the other stays with a family member or loved one.
Residents from the home were given an amazing reception as they visited the End of Life and Bereavement Team to make the donation.
The End of Life and Bereavement Team offers support for the person in the last days of life, support for those who are important to the person, support following sudden and unexpected death and provides education in relation to care of the dying and bereavement.
