Wrexham ITU Nurses Bed Push Successful in Raising Money

A big Well Done from Healthcare Matters to the ITU Nurses of Wrexham Maelor Hospital!

On Saturday 7th of July the Critical Care Team completed a bed push through Wrexham Town Centre, aiming to raise £500 to be spent on equipment for their ward, which will make it more comfortable for patients.

So far they have raised in excess of £800 on the Just Giving page alone, not including the bucket collection and you can still support them by donating here:

A great effort from a team that already work extremely hard to help us all!

 

Healthcare Matters Staff Become Dementia Friends

All Healthcare Matters staff have recently received Dementia Friends Training, taking the time to learn a little more about Dementia, and how we can help those living in our communities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pictured are two of the groups proudly showing of their Dementia Friends signs and badges. All of the staff found the training fun and enlightening. Managing Director Phil Spiby said “As our staff are in contact with people living with dementia on a daily basis, this training is really important to us!”

Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition.

Which spreader bar is best?

When choosing a hoist you may have to make a decision on whether to have a four point or a two point spreader bar. A two point is more common in the UK than a four point spreader bar, but both have their advantages. Please call us to discuss your need: [dt_sc_phone phone=”01978 269 901″ /]
