Jasmine, formerly known as Cayman HospiceCare, received a US$10,000 donation from EY Cayman on Wednesday.
Jasmine is a not-for-profit organisation, dedicated to providing care to people in the Cayman Islands living with long-term or end-stage conditions.
“Jasmine goes above and beyond in providing exceptional care to the many Caymanian residents that require their services, and we’re proud to support an organization so dedicated to helping others,” said Keiran Hutchison, EY Partner and Transaction Advisory Services regional leader. “We’re committed to giving back to our community and Jasmine is an excellent example of a charity helping to improve the quality of life across the Cayman Islands.”
Jasmine’s care is free of charge to all Caymanian residents. It provides support to people living with debilitating pain, as well as specialist hospice care to people living with life-limiting illness. The charity provides support for both patients as well as family members, care givers and loved ones.
Recently, thanks to the support of many individuals and businesses across Cayman, the organisation was able to open its new care and operations facility fitted with rooms for palliative and hospice patients, a common area and peaceful garden space.
“We’re incredibly thankful for the generous donation from EY, as it allows us to continue to provide the much needed medical support to our patients and their families free of charge,” said Felicia McLean, Director of Operations and Nursing. “What many don’t realize is the wide range of services the organization provides, including hospice, respite and palliative care, which allows the organization to help even more individuals.”
McLean noted that the EY donation would be used to advance the training of facility staff.
