Why working as a Marie Curie Nurse is truly rewarding

At Marie Curie we know how important it is for someone living with a terminal illness to spend their final weeks as they wish. Our nurses help make this possible, by offering comfort, compassion, love and support.

Sally, the nurse in our latest TV ad, has worked for Marie Curie for over 20 years providing dedicated care when people need it most, in the comfort of their own homes. You can find out more about the vital support Sally provides in our video.

Marie Curie Nurse Sally says: 

“Working for Marie Curie is fantastic because it enables people to have choice at the end of their life, allowing them to stay in the comfort of their own home, surrounded by the people they love.

"I feel touched to have seen people in their last hours holding their loved ones, stroking their pets, listening to the music they love, looking onto their garden and saying what they want to say, all in the privacy and comfort of their own home.

"It is a very special role to be able to share such an emotional time with a family and help their loved one to die in comfort and with dignity in their own surroundings.

"Being able to walk into someone's home and make a real difference is a real privilege."
