Just what does a hospice do?
Birmingham's oldest hospice is holding its first ever open day to encourage people to find out more about hospice care.

Taking place on Friday October 12, the open day at the hospice in Erdington will include a question and answer session with clinicians, a talk about well-being, an art activity, refreshments and the chance to find out more about volunteering and events.

Coinciding with national Hospice Care Week, 8-14 October, the event is open to all and is free of charge. The open day will also introduce people to John Taylor's Friday Social Group which aims to bring local elderly residents together for friendship and company.

Hospice Head of Brand and Media Diane Parkes said: "At our open day people can ask all the questions they want to know about hospice care. People can be afraid of hospices but when they come to John Taylor they realise it's a lovely, warm and friendly place where we offer so many different services – it's not what they expect."

And she added: "Visitors are welcome to just turn up on the open day but if they are able to let us know in advance it helps with catering – simply email enquiries@johntaylorhospice.org.uk with a name and number of people."

The open day is at John Taylor Hospice, 76 Grange Road, Erdington B24 0DF on Friday October 12 between 11am-3pm with a program of events scheduled. People are welcome to come for the full program or drop in for an hour or more. Full program details are on the hospice website at www.johntaylorhospice.org.uk/get-involved/join-an-event/565-hospice-open-day
