Imagine….

…standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 or even 15,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below.

Imagine being able to do the highest Skydive in the UK, whilst harnessed to a professional freefall parachute instructor and at the same time being able to help Princess Alice Hospice! Stop imagining; it’s real and it’s happening throughout this year and you can be part of it.

Why not jump on a special day, a big Birthday or in memory of a loved one? We have dates available throughout the year. For some inspiration, watch this video of our brave supporter Tony Skydiving for the Hospice on his 80th birthday.

The maximum weight for a tandem skydive is 18 stone fully clothed and there are no upper age limits but if you are aged 16 or 17 you must be accompanied by an adult.

Important: please download and read our enquiry pack before you sign up to ensure you meet all the requirements.

Families and carers drop in sessions – Thursdays from 25 February - 25 February 2021

Sessions will be held on Thursdays:

25 February; 4, 11, 18 and 25 March; 1, 8 and 15 April.

Each session will run from 10am until 11am approx.

All sessions will be held online via zoom.

For further information, please contact rosienoble@pah.org.uk.

Family members who are carers matter too. We’re here to hear your concerns and talk you through some possible hints and tips. These are free, informal sessions where carers can meet each other remotely without leaving their own homes. The sessions are open to anyone caring for someone with a life-limiting illness, regardless of whether Princess Alice Hospice is caring for that person or not.

The sessions are led by professionals working at Princess Alice Hospice and are very informal and interactive – you are welcome to say as much or as little as you like. Make a cup of tea and grab a biscuit…

The sessions are outlined below – the description is just a guide – we can talk about any issues that are important to you.

25.02.2021 – Being a Carer

This is an introductory session but if you cannot attend for any reason you can still join the other sessions. We will introduce ourselves and talk about caring in general as well as any specific issues people may wish to highlight about their own circumstances. We can explore particular challenges and make plans to cover them in the coming weeks.

04.03.2021 – Eating well

We start each session just catching up on the previous week and what has gone well and not so well.

This session is often well-receive as we talk about nutrition, food and the issues around special diets for people who are less well. Our chef often joins us to talk about the recipes he recommends for unwell people and also quick nutritious meals for their Carers who are often so tired they do not eat well themselves. We can also share recipes that people favour.

11.03.2021 – Planning Ahead

This session is a chance to think about the future in terms of getting wishes discussed and documented. It is a chance to discuss any thoughts about the future – from what sort of treatment might be offered to finding out who to talk to about how to make a will or whether you have any preferences around where your loved one would like to be cared for as their condition progresses. This session often offers peace of mind as we can offer a volunteer to go through your own circumstances individually and set up sessions just for you.

18.03.2021 – Keeping active/being active

This session is facilitated by a physio and an occupational therapist to talk about how to protect yourself when trying to care for your loved one. It is about keeping safe when trying to move them and also looking at opportunities of specialist equipment which may be of help.

 25.03.2021 – Support session

This is another opportunity to talk about all the things that matter to you – by now you may have made some relationships with other carers via the sessions and it is a chance to have a catch up and exchange thoughts and ideas

01.04.2021 – Managing anxiety

This session will be a chance to look at how we can manage our thought sand feelings when we become anxious. We will explore relaxation techniques such as aromatherapy and meditation type exercises.

08.04.2021 – What happens as the patient becomes less well. How to cope

One of our senior staff nurses will be leading this session to explore any of the unanswered questions you might have about caring for people as they become less well. This will be a chance to ask any clinical queries you may have as well as talking about what to expect in terms of eating and sleeping as people become less well

15.04.2021 – Peer support session

This another recap session where Carers can exchange ideas and talk about anything that has come up that they are not sure about. We will look at further sessions and see if people would like to keep on attending sessions together.

If you would like to attend, please book your place below or confirm by email rosienoble@pah.org.uk

We look forward to hearing from you.

March Virtual Death Cafe - 22 March 2021

7.30pm – 8.30pm

T: 01372 461958
E: cc@pah.org.uk

A chat about death over coffee and cake might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it could get people talking about a subject that is still taboo for many. In our Death Cafés we aim to empower communities with the knowledge, skills and confidence to engage with death, dying and loss.

Here’s what one attendee, Sue, had to say about her experience:
“Death is part of life and affects us all, yet it largely remains a taboo subject. Attending the death cafe has given me the chance to discuss and learn from others and consider how I feel about my own wishes for the end of my life and to express those to my family. It is a positive, interesting experience and feels very safe to chat about death which you can’t do anywhere else”.

Please note, this is not a bereavement cafe and is not suitable for anyone who is recently bereaved.
