others..... whatever the reason, Exmouth & Lympstone Hospiscare are looking for

patients you meet will inspire you to be more appreciative of what you have in your own life.  If
you want to put something back into your community, then go for it".

Sitters
Sitting with a patient to allow the carer to go shopping, to the hairdresser's, or simply to have
a littletime to themselves. “When you are looking after someone you love 24 hours a day, you
cannot  understand the strain and pressure it puts on you and the relationship. It is such a
relief to get away for just a couple of hours knowing your loved one is still being cared for”.
