This year’s bauble evokes the Christmas spirit, where family, friends and communities come to together to enjoy each other’s company and to make lasting memories. During this time of year, we also remember those who are no longer with us and cherish those who are.
At hospice we see people coming together year-round. We see communities supporting each other and working together to create a space where people feel comfort and compassion.
“What I see is an immense coming together of families, people and friends. Everyone’s on the journey to support that person whatever that may be – it’s about being together.
As a community we need to wrap ourselves around those who are dying.” Mary, Palliative Care Nurse.
“You need good friends, you can’t isolate yourself through something like this, you have to make the effort to surround yourself with people who are positive and supportive and kind.” – Margaret, wife of a hospice patient.
The last couple of years have been challenging for many with the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic. It’s during these difficult times, we realise the importance of people coming together to support each other. We also miss those who live overseas, or even those who live nearby but are not part of the same bubble and of course those who are no longer with us. So, this Christmas
we want to recognise both the people supporting each other and the people we can’t be with.
Hanging a ‘Togetherness’ bauble on your tree this year is a symbol of being around those you love. Gifitng a bauble is also perfect way to show a loved one you will always be with them, even if you’re physically apart.
There are limited numbers of the baubles available, so please visit your hospice store or buy online today. Thank you for your support, this Christmas.
