Brand new tech for Midlands' hospice children

Wed 22nd Jan 2014 

We recently installed two new packages of cutting edge technology at two Acorns children's hospice sites in Walsall and Birmingham.

Ann Smallman, head of care services at Acorns in the Black Country, said: “The equipment, installation and training provided by Lifelites is a wonderful gift for Acorns. It gives the children that use the hospice access to technology that provide wonderful experiences, allowing them to interact and communicate in new ways. We’re really looking forward to using it every day and behalf of everyone at Acorns I’d like to say a big thank you to Lifelites for their ongoing support.”

The Acorns children’s hospice project, which also contains state-of-the-art touchscreen technology, the latest gaming consoles and specially adapted iPads has been put together with children in hospices in mind. The national charity says the incredible technology will enable even the most disabled children to participate and communicate with their carers and families.

The charity says that Lifelites equipment and support will cost around £50,000 over the next four years but Acorns won’t have to pay a penny towards it. Instead, Lifelites has been supported by Thomas Cook Children’s Charity and others.

Joanna Wild, Chairperson for Thomas Cook Children’s Charity, said: “We’re very proud to have supported the work of Lifelites over the past three years through funding for high tech computers and flight simulator software. This has given children, who might not otherwise get to travel on a plane, a wonderful opportunity to explore the world from within a children’s hospice.”
