During the last financial year, trusts and foundations have played a vital role in supporting the excellent care Dougie Mac provides to local families.
Here are a just a few ways their support has benefitted our local community:
Essential Medical Equipment
Provided funding for 10 nebulisers and 5 syringe drivers to help ease distressing symptoms. As a modern and progressive hospice, it is imperative that we are using the latest technology and equipment possible.
Provided funding to replace our old spa pool at the children’s hospice. Hydrotherapy is extremely beneficial for physical and mental well-being.
Supported nursing care in our Inpatient unit to promote and maintain the best quality of life possible, for as long as possible.
The Power of Play
Funded therapeutic play sessions. Play Therapy is like counselling but using play instead of words. It helps children to communicate how they are feeling.
