DESCRIPTION

With summer now upon us, there isn't a better time to look at the wellbeing benefits of outdoor activities such as gardening and walking that can help relieve the emotional stresses that bereavement can bring. We also take a look at the huge part art can play in supporting those at the end of life and those they leave behind.

    Caring issue for a carers issue

    All profits from advertising go to the charities we support.

    R ecently I interviewed the vibrant hospital chaplain Reverend Carol Taplin to learn more about her role. I dont personally follow a faith tradition, but through my previous voluntary and work experience I do fully appreciate the comfort and support people get from it, particularly in bereavement.

    Carol is the lead chaplain for Families & Therapies division, caring for women and children in the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board and based at the Royal Gwent Hospital in Newport, South Wales. People have so many needs and Carol sees taking a practical approach as an essential part of her work as a chaplain.

    Maternity is often needing clothing for premature and new born babies. Carols call-out for donations sees a lady arrive this particular morning in the chaplaincy office with the offer of baby clothes, some of which were new or hardly used. Carol gratefully accepts and assures the lady she will deliver them to the maternity wards.

    Carol has been involved in and around healthcare since her teens. One of her brothers died when she was 4 years old and for some years her father would take gifts to Great Ormond Street.

    I thought it was him just being a kind dad, and then realised it was his way of memorialising Andrew, who we lost. I suppose its how Im wired.

    What can we do to help others? As Carol says, If I say to you I care about you, you can hear it, but if I do something for you [placing her right hand on her heart] you can hear it here.

    We all have the capacity to give in some form, a listening ear, a helping hand. By offering to do something small, we can make a huge difference to someone.

    Wedding charity offers togetherness for the dying

    A new charity launched last month to gift wedding services to people who have a terminal or life-shortening illness, regardless of age, gender, race or religion.

    The Gift of a Wedding is looking to promote and protect the physical and mental wellbeing of terminally ill adults in the UK.
