TLC stands for Tender Loving Care.
This award-winning programme of care for the dying has been developed as a practical-based offshoot of Soul Midwifery
More about TLC
The TLC sessions provided by our soul midwife have been invaluable in supporting our staff to think more broadly about what is important at the end of someone’s life. It has helped to encourage the more traditional view of using medicine to cope at end of life and our ethos is certainly more non medicinal following our TLC sessions.I feel that our staff feel more confident when supporting someone at the end of their life as the approach is less clinical and more individualised. The staff have all thoroughly enjoyed the TLC sessions and we look forward to extending our partnership with the soul midwifery group in the future

In fact nurses, HCAs and hospice/hosptial bedside volunteers have reported that the practical, holistic skills they learn on this workshop have helped them feel like they are able to offer even more compassionate care. They also report feeling better-equipped to support their patients' family members, by helping them to understand the holistic stages of dying and adapt their support accordingly.
