With your help we can open two additional bedrooms in our in-patient unit and start welcoming more patients. By supporting our Room to Care campaign you’ll be helping over 100 more families in our community at a time when they need us the most.
Julie, our in-patient Senior Sister, has written a letter to supporters explaining why we need to raise more money for front line staff so that we’re able to meet the growing demand for our specialist services in the New Forest and Waterside area. Here’s Julies Letter for you to read.
Help us to never have to say no
Without the additional bedrooms we’ll have a waiting list for our in-patient unit, and there may be times when we simply can’t take in a patient when their illness goes into crisis. To open, and keep these extra bedrooms open, we need to raise an additional £403.68 each day – that works out at just £16.82 per hour of care per bed. And we need to raise these funds this year, next year and for the years to come.
You can make this possible by signing up to a monthly donation of your choice. Your donation will go a long way to supporting our work and getting the bedrooms open. Download the direct debit form and make a difference to someone’s life today.
Your donations soon add up. A stay in our in-patient unit includes a whole range of wraparound support for our patients and their loved ones - providing the physical, medical and nursing care our patients need, as well as emotional support from our counselling and chaplaincy teams.
Here are some examples of how your donations can make a difference:
Your £3 monthly donation could help fund delicious meals all freshly made every day, packed full of goodness and tailored to each patient’s appetite
Your £5 monthly donation could fund complimentary therapy treatments that are so valuable to help manage symptoms as well as providing relaxation and comfort
Your £10 monthly donation could make such a difference funding physiotherapy treatments that help with breathing, movement, pain and fatigue as well as maintain independence for as long as possible
Your £16 monthly donation could make a very real difference helping fund a patient’s care in our in-patient unit
Bigger donations could fund much, much more
