Sister Lucy is a qualified palliative care nurse with a compassion for people living with a life limiting illness.
Palliative care means specialised care for people suffering from a life-threatening illness and when cure is no longer an option.
Sister Lucy is a home-based care nurse and works exclusively in the Bedfordview and Edenvale areas.
Sister Lucy originally worked for Hospice East Rand from 2002 to 2009 and left to pursue other avenues of nursing which were not as emotionally draining as hospice work.
She worked for an Aesthetics practice in Benoni and later for the Gauteng Cornea and Eye Bank before rejoining Hospice earlier this year.
Sister Lucy had a great desire to work for Hospice again because of the special love she has for this type of work and the close connection with the patients.
Hospice East Rand is a non-profit organisation which was founded in 1986.
