The number of hospices that have received cash from Lifetime’s referral scheme has now risen to 22.
The latest to join the list is Douglas Macmillan Hospice based in Blurton, Staffordshire.
Lifetime has loyal clients up and down the country and the hugely successful referral scheme has now raised just short of £35,000.
The foundation of our financial management business has always been the relationships we have had with our clients and Lifetime has been built upon their loyalty and the level of service we have been able to provide. We have grown and continue to do so through the recommendations and referrals we receive from them, this has helped us to remain profitable and so able to improve our services to all our clients.
We want to continue to develop this relationship and we also want to give you the opportunity to make a difference to your community.
For all introduced clients to Lifetime, we will donate, on your behalf, 10% of any initial fees generated on new transactions completed with these clients, to your local hospice.
The Aim of Hospices.
A hospice is a house, or home, dedicated to the care of terminally ill patients. The first hospice was set up in 1900. There are about 100 hospices in the UK .
Hospices are not funded by the Government. They are paid for by fundraising, donations and money left in wills.
The purpose of hospices is to care for and support patients and their family and friends.
There are 3 main aims of hospice care:
- To relieve pain. Today it is thought it is not necessary for terminally ill patients to die in pain. Hospices specialize in pain control. Hospice staff believe all pain, however severe can be brought under control.
- To help patients, friends and relatives face up to death. Opportunities are given to the patients and to family members to discuss death and dying.
- To care for the emotional needs of friends and family. Hospices help families cope with bereavement before, during and after the death of their relative.
