Staff training at our last installation
Butterwick House offers a very warm welcome to babies, children, teenagers and young adults with life-limiting conditions and disabilities and and their families. Butterwick House aims to offer a bright and happy environment where the children and their families can make the most of every moment and Lifelites supports them through the donation of assistive and inclusive technology.
At one of our hospice visits, we met Megan, who loved using the Lifelites switches to play with various games and applications on the touchscreen computers. She has very limited movement, but using the Lifelites technology was able to interact with her family and care team in a way that had been impossible before.
Megan's mum said:
"Megan loves the interaction with the staff as they play with the various games and programs which stimulate and interest her. Her favourites are the on screen stories because she is able to use the switch to turn the page. This sounds small, but for her it is so empowering and really builds her confidence."
Head of care Alison Appleby said:
"We would not be able to provide such stimulating and creative technology without the support of Lifelites. We're so grateful, it makes such a difference to the quality of the time the children spend here."
We will donate our latest magical technology package to the Durham-based children's hospice this year. Our donation includes ongoing maintenance and training so everything remains in working order. Can you help fund the ongoing training and technical support for this package?
