We are looking forward to donating a new package of assistive technology for the life-limited and disabled children visited by the Acorns Black Country in 2021/22!
Here’s what some of the staff at Acorns in 2017 had to say about their technology package:
Jackie Griffiths, Head Nurse said: "We have the ability to concentrate on the children, the happy times and the making memories, and their activities. It's not just about their nursing needs, it's about the bigger picture, and I think that's what Lifelites is assisting us to do."
Chris Reed, Head of Care at Acorns in Selly Oak said: “You can see the enjoyment that the children get from participating in a lot of things that we do in the hospice, whether that's play, activities, homework, any interaction is really really important. So things like the Eyegaze, for people who have limited cognitive ability or verbal communicative ability, to be able to participate in things, and for them to realise when they first try and use that they're in control, they're the ones who can actually define what they want to do.
