Through the night diary

A diary of a typical night for one of our Night Nurses


It costs £35 to provide one hour of Night Nurse care, so please give whatever you can afford.  It really will make a difference to someone in our area.


The work of our Night Nursing Team is a really important part of our Princess Alice Hospice at Home service. We’ve been told, time and time again, how much their presence means to patients and their families. Over the years, we’ve received so many letters of thanks from bereaved families, whose loved ones were cared for overnight – here are just a few snippets:

“As David neared the end of his life, a (Princess Alice) nurse would stay overnight, that was such a help. Being able to sleep made me more able to cope with the stress and stay strong for David.”


“I would like to express my sincere thanks for the tremendous support you gave to us all in making a very painful experience more bearable.”


“We were so pleased to be able to follow his wishes and keep him at home in his own surroundings.”


“Thank you for your gentle expert care during my husband’s final hours.”


“We don’t know how we would have coped if that service and the brilliant nurses who work in that team had
not been there for us. We made mum a promise right from the start that she would remain at home to the very end.”
