The League of Friends has purchased a "Sensory Portaire" for the Helston Community Hospital January 2014. This is a piece of equipment that helps calm confused patients. This equipment is portable and calms distressed patients by playing music, displaying pictures, lights and movements on the wall.

Sister Teresa said it has made such a difference all the staff have been impressed with the results.

This year we have purchased the following for the hospital:- 2 Nimbus 3 Mattress and Pump, Trauma Stretcher (Couch/Trolly MIU), Roof Blinds for Conservatory, 6 Soft Form Premier Mattresses, Christmas monies for patients, 4 Flo-Tech Contour Cushions, Maintenance of Aquarium in Outpatients' Waiting Room, Replacement TV in Rooms 5, 6 & 18, Sundry repairs to TVs, Plants and Bulbs for Sensory Garden, Easter Eggs, Replacement light fitting for Aquarium, replacement remote handset for TV totalling £13939.54.

 

 

We would like to say that all monies given to the League of Friends at the Helston Community Hospital goes straight into equipment for the Hospital and there are no administration fees. So please remember we can only continue to give the Hospital our support if you continue to support us.

All donations can be left at Reception at the Hospital or sent to our Treasurer Sue Atkins c/o the Helston Community Hospital, Helston TR13 8DR

The object of the League is to relieve patients and former patients of the Helston Community Hospital who are sick, convalescent; disabled, handicapped, infirm or in need of financial assistance and, generally to support the charitable work of the Hospital. The League supplements the service by providing facilities, buildings and equipment which may be required for the treatment of such patients.

The League works closely with the Primary Care Trust and the Matron and Staff to make this one of the best Community Hospitals in Cornwall. The League provided the "Jack Johns Suite" which was built onto the hospital for the use of patients families when they need to be with their "loved ones" for long periods of time. It gives them the opportunity to prepare a snack for themselves, shower and just relax for an hour without leaving the hospital. The League is also providing a Conservatory and Sensory Garden at the request of the Matron and Staff. (Click on "Purchases" for more photos
