Jill is looking forward to contributing to the development of compassionate communities across Cheshire and passing on the skills and experience she’s developed by working and volunteering in her local communities.

Jill has recently published her first book ‘Moments of Meaning: Living Life Whilst Facing Death’. The book is aimed at someone who has recently discovered a loved one has a life limiting illness. It uses real life examples of how others have managed their lives in similar circumstances and useful references for further information and support.  Professionals, new to the area of palliative care, may also find this helpful.
