Covid-19 is affecting us all but Prospect Hospice remains operational in order to support the increasing number of our community needing end of life support. Here you'll find lots of information about the virus and information and advice that we think will help you at this time.
Prospect Hospice has been providing end of life care to the people of Swindon and north east Wiltshire for over 40 years. Find out more about where we've come from and who we are here.
Find out about the range of end-of-life care services that we offer to patients and their families. These are designed to provide compassionate, personalised support during every stage of a life-limiting illness in every kind of care setting, to anyone who needs it, free of charge.
We couldn’t do what we do without considerable support from our local community. Find out all the different ways in which you can support Prospect Hospice, including fundraising, volunteering and purchasing from our shops. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
Enabling patients to move to a chair or to their bed with minimal discomfort.
For many patients, just getting up and about their room – to the toilet, or to their chair for a change in scenery – can be painful. To aid them, we use a special sling, attached to a hoist, to help move them around. The slings we have now are made of nylon – and must be removed once we’ve hoisted a patient into each new place.
So, we’re hoping to buy some of these Comfort Recline Slings, which will make a massive difference to those who need help moving about. They’re made of soft, gentle fabric which means that when they’re placed behind a patient, we don’t have to remove them again; the sling can simply stay there for the next time they need to shift without being uncomfortable against their skin. They’re specially made to fit over toilets as well, so will be a huge step up from our current supply.
We need 10 of these. If we receive donations for all 10, your support will go towards the vital running costs of the hospice.
