A spokesperson for the organisers said: “With the Seaton hospital beds closing it’s very important to Beer Village that we support the Seaton Nurses. They have nursed a local resident recently who lost her life and was nursed at home. There is also a child in the village who is using the Children’s Hospice.”
** Children’s Hospice South West provides care and support for families who have children with life-limiting conditions.
** Seaton Friends Hospiscare@home service is a dedicated team of seven nurses who are available to allow terminally ill patients registers at Seaton, Beer or Colyton practices to spend their finals days in their own homes. The service is entirely funded by Seaton and District Hospital League of Friends.
