The Life and Death Podcast

We are very excited to be launching The Life and Death Podcast – honest conversations about what a good death really means and end of life care.

You’ll hear from both givers and receivers of palliative and end of life care and get a deeper understanding of what it takes to provide specialist, compassionate hospice care and give an insight into Ashgate Hospicecare and the people we support.

Your host, Stephen Rumford, senior physiotherapist at Ashgate Hospicecare, brings together patients and professionals to chat about their unique relationships, hospice life, and dying well. Each episode follows a different pair and another side of hospice life.

You can listen to the latest episodes below…

Episode Two: Sarah and Lynette

Dr Sarah Parnacott and her patient Lynette, who is living with an incurable tumour, chat about their relationship, providing care for patients with complex needs and the importance of a dignified death.

“All my patients have an incurable illness but like Lynette, they’re very much about living.” – Dr Sarah Parnacott

Episode One: Stephen and Roy

Senior physiotherapist Stephen, and his patient Roy, chat about what it means to live and die well, and what Ashgate Hospicecare means to them both. It will move you, make you laugh and make you think.

“You’re on this earth to live, and the dying side sorts itself out.” – Roy
