Upgrades included the removal of old flooring, preparation and carpeting of the floor in the training room, painting and the complete remodelling of the kitchen facility.
The work was carried out by Lion Kevin Ross of RD Civils and his team, and a total of R69 000 was spent on the project.
The South Coast Hospice Training Department provides ongoing training courses on Community Health, HIV/AIDS counselling, I ACT (Integrated access to care and treatment), Distance Palliative Care Nursing for professional nurses and enrolled nurses, Introduction to Palliative Care, TB Palliative Care for care givers, Introduction to Paediatric Palliative Care, Introduction to Cancer and Grief Loss and Bereavement.
Training for the above courses is provided by professional facilitators with many years of training facilitation experience. The Training Department, run by Mrs Karen Warman, is a vital resource and training has already been provided to approximately 360 individuals so far this year.
On Wednesday last week, a group of Lions visited South Coast Hospice and officially handed over the newly revamped facilities to CEO Di van Dyk who expressed her sincere appreciation to the club for this kind gesture and for their ongoing support.
