Complementary therapies:

Through its volunteer program, Fernlea Houseis very proud to be able to offer a range of complementary therapies to guests, carers, staff and volunteers. Therapists are professionally trained and belong to relevant professional bodies and offer their skills free of charge.

Currently, Reiki, hand and foot massages are offered. Fernlea House is always open to welcoming more therapists who may be interested in offering a few hours as a volunteer.

This is an exceptionally valuable addition to other services at Fernlea House.

Community education

Although not funded for this program, Fernlea House takes every opportunity to promote its services and raise community awareness about end of life experiences, so they can be better understood and respected.

The Grants sub-committee has tried several times to attract funding, but has not been successful in recent years. (See How can you help section of website.)
