Shalom, meaning peace, provides holistic, accessible, personalised care to the people of Pembrokeshire that have been diagnosed with cancer or life limiting illness. They provide respite care for families and support those who may feel isolated living alone or who live in rural communities. Shalom is a place to share worries, talk to other people that will understand and to let go of anxieties. The caring team at Shalom House are there to assist people both in the day centre and in their own homes, along with supporting families to take care of their loved ones every step of the journey, including ultimately bereavement counselling.
You can donate to Shalom House to help them continue their amazing work via their website www.shalomstdavids.org or directly to Sam Wilson-Croft, Shalom House, 113 Nun Street, St Davids SA62 6BP. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
