Amy Hewett, from Great Yarmouth, accessed care and support from EACH at our old hospice in Quidenham. She had a brain tumour, and died in 2017, aged six.
Mum Tracy and dad Gary explained: “She needed her medication given, couldn’t walk very well and used a wheelchair. She needed lots of attention all day and night.”
Amy, who has a sister, Mary, and brother, Gavin, received care and support from the EACH Symptom Management Nursing Service - a team of specialist nurses who work closely with children and young people with life-threatening conditions, their families and other professionals involved in their care, providing symptom management advice and support. Amy also went to Quidenham for weekends and day visits.
Tracy said: “Amy enjoyed coming to Quidenham. She loved all the arts and crafts, and the attention she would get from the team. As it was difficult for her to go upstairs to the bathroom at home, she enjoyed having a bath at Quidenham, especially the jacuzzi bubbles and sensory lights.”
