Sponsor a Nurse
All our nurses have a passion for hospice care. Our specialist skills aim to meet local patients and families' varying needs at a vulnerable time.
Nursing staff see it as an absolute privilege to be allowed into their lives at this point in order to provide compassion, comfort and a safe haven.
Having this bathing lifter will be incredibly useful for helping our patients in and out of the bath, in a safe and dignified way.
Along with getting a new bath for the Adult In-Patient Unit, we are looking to acquire one of these bathing lifters. Such a piece of equipment will be a great help to our nurses and healthcare assistants, assiting them in lifting, transferring and bathing patients who need help.
Like the new bath we hope to be able to fund, this lifter will help our patients immensely. Many people who come to stay at the hospice are unable to take a bath in their own homes due to various reasons, and the ability to offer a safe, relaxing and accessible bath can mean an awful lot.
For more info please take a look at the manufacturer's website here.
