Debbie’s Pittstop

Hospice Isle of Man and Rebecca House have officially opened a new room in its refurbished building dedicated to the memory of a really special woman.

Debbie’s Pittstop, named after Debbie Pitts who sadly died in January 2020, was officially opened by her dad Stephen Pitts.

As well as serving Douglas on the Borough Council, including a spell as Mayor, Debbie also worked at Rebecca House for 12 years.

A Hospice statement said: ‘To honour the legacy that has been left behind by Debbie, a room in the newly refurbished Rebecca House has been aptly named Debbie’s Pittstop. Last month, we were joined by Debbie’s closest family and friends for the official opening of the room.

‘Debbie’s Pittstop will be used as a private space for discussions with families and carers to allow handover of information/changes in care needs to offer support if a family expressed they wish to discuss any concerns they are currently facing when they attend for respite care. The room will also be used for planned meetings with families to complete assessments and for professionals meetings.

‘What an inspirational and incredible lady who is missed so dearly every single day.’
