Stepping Stone visits St Mary’s

Stepping Stone Hospice paid a visit to St Mary’s Children’s Home in Rosettenville on Thursday, 14 December, to deliver festive parcels put together by members of the clinical team. After receiving a very warm welcome by the children and staff, Stepping Stone CEO Tersia Burger addressed everyone and told them a bit about what a hospice is and does. The children were very interested and asked quite a few questions. One boy asked if we can help people live longer, to which Tersia replied that while we can’t change the eventual outcome for our patients, we can help them live ‘better’ for the time they have left; that we support them and care for them and love them – and that, in essence, is what a hospice does.

St Mary’s has been in operation since 1902 and provides a safe, secure and therapeutic environment for children from families in crisis. At present, the home looks after just over 60 children of various ages. Just like hospice, they rely greatly on the generosity of the community, sponsors and donors to keep their doors open.

Courageous Conversations

About Courageous Conversations

Working at a hospice exposes us to every kind of human emotion and experience. What we have learnt is that we all have a story. We all experience heartbreak, heartache, uncertainty and difficult times in our lives. Courageous Conversations was borne out of this knowledge. Courageous Conversations is about talking about the 'unspeakable' issues that we are often confronted with and have no outlet to express or learn coping mechanisms for…
