Patient Comfort Appeal
We are so delighted to be able to bring you the exciting news that our Patient Comfort Appeal has raised more than enough to replace the six mattresses (4 standard and 2 super ones) which we needed to be changed!
As you may remember, these mattresses are incredibly specialist and are made up of inflating and deflating pockets, which help prevent bed sores and discomfort for patients. We also wanted to raise enough for 2 ‘super’ mattresses which have in-built alarms, for those patients who are more vulnerable and could be at risk of a fall if they get out of bed without help.
We’d like to say a huge Thank You to everyone who donated to help us replace these mattresses. Linda and the team on the Inpatient Unit would like to share their thanks with you in the video below:
Still want to donate, but missed out? Although we have raised enough to fund these vital bits of equipment, we still need your support to keep our care running – 80% of our running costs are covered by donations. You can donate today at www.thameshospice.org.uk/donate
