The Palliative Peer Support Café
1 Charter Square St, Bury Saint Edmunds IP33 3FD, UK
September 25, 2019 12.30 - 2.30pm
Free to attend
St Nicholas Hospice Care has launched a weekly-drop in group for people with a long-term or life-threatening illness in Bury St Edmunds.
The Palliative Peer Support Café takes place at The Apex in Charter Square, from 12.30 – 2.30pm. It provides a space for people at any stage of their illness, to talk things through with people in the same situation.
Sarah Price, St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Family Support Practitioner, said: “Life changing illness can feel overwhelming, people may feel frightened, anxious, sad, angry, powerless and alone. At the same time as coping with their own feelings, people have to plan for end-of-life, death and dying, work out how to talk with their family and friends, learn medical language and navigate their way around medical settings.
“The café is an informal and open place where people can laugh, cry, get angry or frightened or crack a joke or two.”
The group is held at The Apex every Wednesday, 12.30 – 2.30pm.
