Airedale Hospital and Community Charity recently funded three recliner chairs for Airedale’s Palliative Care Team. The chairs will be available for use by any families staying overnight with relatives in their last days or hours.
The chairs, costing over £500 each, are comfortable and sturdy. Feedback from staff and families has told us that the chairs have been invaluable and have hugely improved experiences for families who have been able to get some rest and comfort and spend more time with their relatives. It has also meant that patients have been able to have comfort and support from their families in their final days.
