Les Bourgs Hospice has recently launched a short documentary film on its website.
The film is intended to give an insight into Les Bourgs Hospice and maybe even attempt to challenge the stigma associated with hospice care.
Les Bourgs Hospice at Andrew Mitchell House was founded for the people of the Bailiwick in 1991 by Greville Mitchell OBE and Mrs Lisa Mitchell. The hospice provides the highest levels of compassionate and professional care to patients suffering from life-limiting illnesses, as well as their loved ones. All Bailiwick residents are able to come to the hospice as an in-patient, as well as for respite or day care and there is no charge for the services provided.
The short documentary features interviews with day hospice patients, family members of previous patients, staff, volunteers as well as the founders of Les Bourgs Hospice.
The film was produced by local filmmaker James Harrison and supported by The Sarnia Memorial Trust and a private donation.
