A friend to the end

Carrey son oilley ec y jerrey’

A friend to the end is a wonderful programme from Compassionate Isle of Man which is specifically designed to provide companionship and support to people in the last 72 hours of their life. By sitting with the patient, holding their hand, reading to them, playing music or simply just being with them during this time, this ensure there is always someone there to hear the patient and provide some comfort in knowing there is someone by their side.

Run by trained volunteers, this programme also helps provide respite for the patient’s family or carers to eat, rest and freshen up, or if the patient has no family on Island, ensures they are not alone at this time.

Dying matters, and A friend to the end really encompasses just how important it is to show compassion, and to be the comfort and support for someone at the end of their life.
