Last week we had the pleasure of welcoming the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, Cllr Christine Bateson, to our children’s hospice in Maidenhead.

It was a wonderful opportunity to show her our amazing state-of-the-art facilities and talk about the vital support we give to local children and their families, all made possible by donations and fundraising.

There are many misconceptions about what children’s hospice care is all about. Not many people understand the all-encompassing care that children’s hospice services like ours provide to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and their families. As well as the specialist clinical care, our holistic and bespoke approach aims to provide the best possible support for each child and family. This includes support such as much-needed respite, specialist play for children and their siblings, symptom management, family support services, end of life care and bereavement support. As well as at our children’s hospice in Maidenhead, Alexander’s Care Team provides support in the family home and the community, including hospitals and schools.

With facilities at our hospice such as a hydrotherapy pool, sensory room and accessible playground, we offer opportunities for children and their siblings to experience fun, joy and adventures, and help families make precious memories for as long as they have. For some of these children and their families, we will support them for many years, for others it may be a shorter period of time.

During the visit, our CEO Fiona introduced the mayor to our some of our wonderful volunteers and members of Alexander’s Care Team. However, we think it was Thomas and Keanu’s big smiles that definitely proved to be the highlight of the visit!

We were very grateful to receive a donation of amazing mental health awareness self-care packages from Charlotte, founder of a lovely local small business called MindFill. They work with a range of clients to curate beautiful and bespoke branded care packages to help with employee wellness.

Thank you for thinking of us, what a lovely treat!
