My name is Chris and I’m an Occupational Therapist at The Prince of Wales Hospice. I’m hoping you will help me give patients the very best care.

We take great pride in the high-quality care and comfort we provide for local families. To achieve this, we urgently need new reclining chairs for our Incare rooms.

We need to buy 14 chairs for a complete set, meaning we have to raise a total of £46,900. Can you help us make this happen so every bedroom gets a new chair?

It is really important that all patients, especially those in the final stages of their life, are as comfortable as can be and able to enjoy as good a quality of life as possible.
This is a part of my job that I love - helping patients feel as comfortable in their Hospice surroundings as they would at home. Therefore, our Incare bedrooms are homely and relaxed, whilst equipped with the latest kit. A really important bit of that kit is specialist recliner chairs.

At home, we all like to relax in our favourite chair, so why should it be any different for patients in the Hospice?
Every day I see the benefits for patients in being able to get out of bed and sit in these chairs. It is no exaggeration to say that these chairs are more than just pieces of furniture. They provide a wonderful sense of independence and wellbeing with posture management and pressure relieving features. They are lifelines that improve the quality of patient’s lives.

The chairs we bought seven years ago have supported hundreds of patients wonderfully well. But they have got to a stage where they need to be replaced now. Three of them have already become unusable. We have had to borrow some to keep our bedrooms open, such is the demand for our in-patient care.

With your support, we will be able to buy a new set of the latest chairs.

Thank you for being a champion of hospice care and your kindness to those with life-limiting illness.
