Hospice holds Wills Month

John Taylor Hospice is launching a free will writing service and offering reduced price wills as part of its annual legacies month.

The hospice has partnered with national and local solicitors to encourage people to make their wishes known during its Wills Month in September.

John Taylor has recently joined forces with McClure Solicitors to provide free wills and a free will review service – a partnership which will continue beyond September.

Yardley-based Robert Shaw and Co and Baches of West Bromwich are also offering reduced price wills to support the hospice.

Head of Fundraising Katie Mitchell said: “Making a will ensures your wishes are followed after you die. It means you are deciding how your assets will be divided and ensuring your loved ones are provided for. And yet nearly two-thirds of adults have not yet made their wills.

“By partnering these solicitors we are providing people with the opportunity to discuss and make their wills with professional solicitors for reduced costs and even for free.”

What our patients think

“The care was second to none”

“At such a heartbreaking and difficult time, the nurses and care assistants knew exactly what to do and to say – we’d have been lost without them. The care they provided for my beautiful wife was second to none and I’ll be forever grateful.”

Roger Perks

“Nothing is too much trouble”

“I can’t thank hospice teams enough. From fitting grab rails in my house and ordering a reclining bed, reviewing of all my medication, providing me with new medical equipment and even helping to organise domestic help for us at home – they’ve covered everything but are always willing to do even more.”

Jackie Bannister

“I don’t know where I’d be without them”

“The support I get is truly is invaluable and I honestly don’t know where I’d be without them. I’m able to talk openly about my illness and ask for advice and support if I need it. I’ve made some incredible friends and the hospice is a very special place full of laughter and kindness. “
