What does the word 'hospice' mean to you?
There are countless myths around hospice care - that it's just like a hospital, that people only come to hospices for the last few days of their lives, that all the care takes place inside the buildings.
Which is why John Taylor is holding an open day where you have the opportunity to come into the building, meet our staff and volunteers and take part in our Friday Social Group.
We'd love to welcome you to John Taylor Hospice - and we'll do our very best to answer any questions you have.
Taking place at our hospice at 76 Grange Road, Erdington B24 0DF, our open day is between 11am-3pm with a programme of events scheduled. People are welcome to come for the full programme or drop in for an hour or more.
It is possible to simply join us on the day but we would be grateful if you would register with names and numbers so we can ensure we've got lunch for you. If you have any questions please email
