Helping Willowbrook Hospice
Providing much needed IT
Helping Willowbrook Hospice during Covid-19 lockdown.
Enquiring what help St Helens Rotary could provide to Willowbrook Hospice during the COVID-19 lockdown we received a request for Ipads and protective covers. (specific covers that pass Care Quality Commission inspection) for use in barrier nursing situations.
Because the hospice is in lockdown and the additional workload by staff on the wards, patients in the Hospice are isolated and have very limited communications with there family friends. The Ipads will be used for keeping in touch with people via Skype or Zoom etc using wifi at the Hospice. They can also be used for entertainment, reading, music, and other applications. The club members were delighted to be able to help to support patents and enable them to keep in touch with their families.
Alun Owen Corporate Director of Willowbrook Hospice thanked the club for the IT equipment that will enable them to keep in touch with their families.
