Meet our new Community Sister…
Stepping Stone Hospice has a new Community Sister, Sr Tina Pieterse. A resident of Alberton herself, Tina has been working as a registered nurse for over a decade, is a mom of two, and describes herself as energetic and chatty.
As a Community Sister, her role involves visiting registered patients of Stepping Stone Hospice who are based at home, to help manage their care. “My main aim is to help bring peace and comfort to patients by managing distressing symptoms, as well as supporting their families. Our goal is always quality of life,” she explains.
Says Stepping Stone Hospice’s Clinical Services Manager, Sister Cheryl Newman: “We continuously strive to deliver good, quality care at our hospice and I am sure that with her confidence, enthusiasm and dynamic nature, Sr Tina will be a valuable addition to the team.”
