In May this year, we brought together our colleagues from across the children’s hospice movement to provide them with an opportunity to discuss the impact Lifelites has and the difference technology can make to the children they work with. We were also keen to hear from them about what we could do to develop the equipment and services we provide to better meet the requirements of their children.

The conference delegates were from a cross section of the hospice services: everyone from IT and facilities managers, heads of care, therapists and play specialists were represented.
We learnt that portability was important to maximise the impact of Lifelites equipment and that internet connectivity helped visitors maintain contacts with their lives outside the hospice.
We also learnt that staff training is as essential to demystify the equipment and maximising its use as tailoring the package accessibility to as wide an audience as possible. They felt a useful addition to the armoury at the hospice would be to align what Lifelites provides with what the children have at school.
They were keen to let us know about the importance of our equipment for the social life at the hospices, helping children and families to relax and make new friends.
Very importantly they agreed that it was good to talk and they enjoyed the opportunity to communicate and exchange ideas and experiences about their use of the Lifelites equipment at their hospice.
