Joan McIntosh says she chose to remember Hospice in her Will because the organisation aligns so well with her own values.

Joan’s generous gift will continue to make a difference well beyond her lifetime.

Throughout her working life, initially as a nurse and later as a hospital chaplain, Joan has had a holistic view of healthcare – responding to the emotional, spiritual and social impact of illness along with physical care.

More recently she has beeen working at Harbour Hospice as a part-time locum chaplain, a role she says is a good fit for her.

“When I updated my Will several years ago, I wanted to ensure that a worthy cause in line with my values would benefit from whatever remained of my estate when I died, as I have no children or other dependants.

“It made sense to name Harbour Hospice/Hibiscus House as a major beneficiary.”
