Rossi and I have the pleasure of meeting the inpatients, day therapy centre and staff at Compton Hospice weekly.
I must admit that the first time we visited I had the misconception that all hospices were sterile environments, full of doctors, patients and not a pleasant place to be in. How wrong was I!
On arriving, the first faces I met were the cheerful volunteers manning reception. From that first moment I could sense that this place isn't the clinical atmosphere that I was expecting.
On going onto the ward I was pleasantly shocked at how relaxed yet professional the whole place was.
There's a real positive air about the place from the patients and staff. As well as the usual medical approach to treatment we were pleased to see that they also have a wide range of alternative therapies.
For Christmas, Rossi (and now Kato) dressed as reindeer. They also now have their own Compton Hospice uniform. It is Kato's first Christmas so he's getting his singing voice ready for joining in with the Christmas carols. Rossi always the professional lies down and leaves the puppy antics up to Kato.
