Fund A Nurse 2024

Meet Jenny

Jenny has been working at Rennie Grove Peace for over a decade. She has seen first hand the challenges faced by our local community, when in need of palliative or end of life care.

Jenny - a clinical nurse specialist with Rennie Grove Peace

“As a clinical nurse specialist, I believe that no one should face death feeling scared and alone, without the care that they need.”

Sadly, too many people are missing out on the care and support they need. Around one in four people who die each year are unable to receive the care they need at the end of their lives. With your help, we can improve this statistic in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.

When nurses like Jenny enter the lives of patients and their families they can change their seemingly impossible situation into something manageable.

This year we are launching an appeal to fund a nurse like Jenny, and make the impossible possible. 

How Jenny and her team made Carol’s final wish a reality

When Carol, a former nurse herself, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, it came as a shock to everyone around her. All she wanted was to be cared for at home, surrounded by her loved ones in the home that she and her husband, Graham, had lived in for over forty years. As her local Hospice at Home team, Jenny and her colleagues were able to make that possible, providing personalised nursing care for her, as well as emotional support for Graham and the rest of the family.

“Jenny and her colleagues in the Hospice at Home team were amazing. They came out to visit us at home and put a personalised care plan in place for Carol. They talked to us at length about what we wanted.” – Graham

Carol’s wishes were to be comfortable at home for as long as possible, so Jenny and her colleagues provided support for her with showering and personal care, as well as managing her medication, as her symptoms and pain levels changed. They also provided support for Graham whenever he needed advice or simply someone to talk to. Read more about Carol’s story here.

Your support ensures specialist nurses are there when needed most

Your support means that our team of specialist nurses can be on hand to care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and support entire families. We want to be here for people for as long as we’re needed.  If you can give today, Rennie Grove Peace will use your generous donation to keep delivering specialist nursing care to people like Carol and her family.

Many more patients across our community need your support.
