Shay playing with Switch controls
We have been supporting the children at Keech Hospice Care since 2000, and this year, we will donate our latest package of magical technology to our lovely friends at the children's hospice Keech Hospice Care in Luton.
At one of our visits, we met Lois who at the time was six years old and had severe spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and epilepsy. She was one of the first to try out the technology donated by Lifelites. Her mum said:
"Lois is a very clever and funny little girl in a body that doesn't do as it's told. She knows exactly what she wants but is unable to tell us, which is heart-breaking. We have tried communication aids in the past, but they don't allow her a great level of independence. To have this technology available for her to use more independently to communicate is a dream come true. It takes her a step towards having the voice she deserves."
Staff at Keech have also given us great feedback about the Lifelites technology:
"This new technology will give the children the ability to express themselves and take enjoyment in technology like other children do. This cutting edge technology is very expensive, and we just wouldn't be able to afford it without Lifelites."
"This will give the children so much more control and the ability to communicate. Thank you so much, it will make such a difference."
