Jersey Hospice and Les Amis facilitate advance care planning workshop through art

Jan 14, 2024

Gail Edwards, Nurse Champion at Jersey Hospice Care, who is trained in leading the No Barriers Here workshops, worked with Les Amis' Registered Managers, Alison Brolly and Donna Bentley, to deliver three workshops using arts-based methods to engage Les Amis residents in advance care planning.

Marguerite, who is a resident with Les Amis relished the experience: "I like my music and I made a drawing of how I would like ABBA to be played to me while I'm in hospital. I've loved this and I would like to do some more of it."

Alison commented: "By using arts and crafts, our residents have been able to express their own choices and wishes, and voiced what they want for their end-of-life care."

Another Les Amis resident, Val, spoke positively of her workshop experience to media: "I've drawn how I would like to play my video games and I've also drawn how I want to be with my family. I'm happy that people know what I want to happen when I die. I've got a toy dog and I've shown that I want to be buried with him because of these workshops."

Gail remarked: "It's been mind-boggling to see that even people who have difficulties with communication, especially the non-verbal residents here, can do this creative work and show what their care preferences are."
