Join our CEO for a “Cup of Tea” – 19 October 2019

Join our CEO for a “Cup of Tea” – 19 October 2019

For some the month of October is synonymous with beer fests, for us at hospice it is the month in which we celebrate World Hospice and Palliative Care Day, marked on the second Saturday of each October.

The aim and purpose of the day is three-fold:

  • To share our vision to increase the availability of hospice and palliative care by creating opportunities to speak out about the issues.
  • To raise awareness and understanding of the needs – medical, social, practical, spiritual – of people living with a life limiting illness and their families.
  • To raise funds to support and develop hospice and palliative care services around the world.

Our CEO, Tersia Burger, has therefore decided to launch her annual CEO Tea in the month of October, thereby committing herself and Stepping Stone Hospice to the purpose of World Hospice and Palliative Care Day

How Club 2000 will help us financially!

How Club 2000 will help us financially!

If we can reach the 2000 tickets (lucky numbers) sold per month, we will be guaranteed of R100 000 per month income of which R25 000 will be allocated to prize money. This will leave us with a R75 000 profit. If we then break this down further –

We have 8 rooms in our In-Patient Unit– the basic costs of caring for a patient in a room per day is R1 155 – this excludes psycho-social care and medication. The profit of R75 000 from our Club 2000 programme will therefore cover the costs of caring for 2 patients in the unit per month. It may not sound like much, but it will be a huge relief and will help take the pressure off a very tight budget.

Annual Memorial Day – 15 September

Annual Memorial Day – 15 September

Stepping Stone Hospice’s Annual Memorial Day will take place on Sunday, 15 September, from 12 noon at the hospice’s In-Patient Unit in New Market Park. This annual event sees families and friends gather together to remember their loved ones and reconnect with the people who cared for them in their last days.

"This will be our sixth Memorial Day since opening our doors in 2013,” says Stepping Stone Hospice CEO, Tersia Burger. “To date, we have had over 1600 patients pass away under our care; people who we remember with love and fondness. On a personal level, I also honour the life of my daughter Vicky Bruce on this day. She was our very first patient, our very first death, and the reason that Stepping Stone Hospice exists at all."

Families and friends are encouraged to bring along a small photo, letter and/or token in memory of their loved one, to put inside a memory capsule that we will be placed in the hospice’s Garden of Remembrance on the day.

“’You are not alone’ has been our promise to the community from the very beginning, and that will never change,” says Tersia.
