HOSPICE HUMBLED BY PPE DONATIONS SINCE COVID-19 OUTBREAK
KEMP Hospice’s supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) has been boosted thanks to generous donations from the community. Due to the coronavirus outbreak the day hospice in Kidderminster is temporarily closed meaning staff are not dealing with patients face-to-face.
But once the restrictions are lifted, PPE will be vital to KEMP as it aims to provide care in the safest possible way. Karen Coles, Care Services Manager at KEMP, has thanked those that have either donated PPE or raised money for the Wyre Forest charity from the sale of face masks; “We are humbled, as ever, by the support of our community.”
She continues; “As we return to providing our care service at the hospice, the use of PPE for both staff, volunteers and patients will be extraordinarily important. They will help ensure we are keeping everyone as safe as possible and having these PPE items donated means we can utilise more your funds toward the care we provide – which is brilliant.’
KEMP’s doors are closed but its services are not. Please contact the hospice on 01562 756000 if you have any questions or feel you need any support.
