I will use the money to purchase stock such as general hygiene supplies, incontinence supplies, clinician generic kits and fuel. I will be using my own car and my colleague will be using hers as well.
My idea is to help older people in their own homes who are unable to get themselves out of bed, wash and dress themselves or those that need help with shopping or those who are lonely and just need company, someone to talk to on a daily basis to check that they are ok.
I have so far got one lady to team up with me to kick start this project. She is also a qualified registered nurse.
Our vision is to grow as a team, and be able to get more team members so we can help as much less able and vulnerable people as we can in our Borough. We will lawfully work with Multidisciplinary Teams including GP surgeries.
My passion as a registered nurse has always been to help the less able, physically, mentally and clinically and this is what this project is all about.
As a registered nurse, I worked both in hospitals and in the community for many years.
I have seen the struggles and amount of loneliness within the less abled in our community and this is how this idea was born, to give help and support.
Your help will be greatly appreciated to kick start this project as soon as possible to help our community.
