Home Based Care Hospice
In the past year, a Day Hospice was set up in Warrenton, by Sister Helena. It is named the "Frances Shannon Hospice" and it has become a model for other outreach programmes in the area, having education and training as a priority. Sister Helena works tirelessly in her efforts to empower the local community.
She has recently established an area within the premises where blind people can meet on aregular basis.
The Hospice also runs a counselling service with quality palliative care provided for those infected and affected by HIV and AIDS.
Apart from managing the centre, Sister Helena travels to the nearby shanty areas to administer to the sick by giving injections and attending to wounds. Her work is highly regarded by the Health Authorities who selected her to undertake the screening for HIV in the area.
