Marie Curie: there for peo­ple with a ter­mi­nal ill­ness – and fam­i­lies

EDP Norfolk - - Charity Focus -

Marie Curie is there for peo­ple liv­ing with any ter­mi­nal ill­ness, and their fam­i­lies. Marie Curie of­fers ex­pert care, guid­ance and sup­port to help them get the most from the time they have left.

The nurses work night and day in peo­ple’s homes across the UK, pro­vid­ing hands-on care and vi­tal emo­tional sup­port, while Marie Curie Hos­pices of­fer spe­cial­ist round-the-clock care.

Peo­ple are sup­ported through­out their ill­ness with prac­ti­cal in­for­ma­tion, sup­port from trained vol­un­teers and the com­fort of know­ing some­one will be there when they want to talk.

Marie Curie em­ploys more than 2,700 nurses, doc­tors and other health­care pro­fes­sion­als, and with its nine hos­pices around the UK, is the largest provider of hospice beds out­side the NHS.
