ParkViews: 12 March 2020: Jacqui Kaye CEO of Hospice Wits

Jacqui Kaye, CEO of Hospice Wits, will present our March ParkViews. Jacqui will talk on the multitude of services offered by the team at Hospice Wits. Hospice Wits was established back in 1979 by Stan and Sherley Henen who responded to a need in their community for Hospice care.

Initially care was provided by a part-time nurse from their home.

The Gordon Waddell House in Houghton was donated in 1983 and the adjacent properties were purchased in 1985 with assistance from JCI.

From humble beginnings with just 5 staff the operation has grown to more than 125 full-time staff including doctors, nurses, social workers, psychologists and spiritual counsellors.

See you on Thursday.
