With the building now taking shape, we need to prepare for patients when we open our doors in 2020. There is a range of equipment and furniture we will need to buy and any donation towards this would be greatly appreciated.
All donations will be used to buy equipment and furniture needed to support patients and families being cared for by the new Fair Havens Hospice. If we raise more than we need, the remaining funds will be used for general costs relating to new Fair Havens Hospice.
There will be ensuite bathrooms in every bedroom, so if our patients want to have a shower, there will be soft, fluffy towels to keep them warm whilst they change.
We need to responsibly dispose of needles that are used to administer medication to patients. These sharp bins help us to keep staff and patients safe.
We want our patients to feel comfortable during their stay at Fair Havens. These linen sets will make the beds look and feel welcoming, and ensure we have plenty of spares.
Many people will be visiting patients - Care Team members, friends and families - so we need to minimise the risk of them catching infections. These soap and sanitiser dispensers keep bugs at bay.
Family members spending lots of time at the hospice will want somewhere comfortable to sit. These chairs will be within the bedrooms and dotted around the hospice so there's always a seat available.
These are £300 x 2 per room.
Patients are encouraged to bring in items which make them feel at home, so these bedside lockers keep these personal objects close and safe.
A table that goes over the bed gives our patients the opportunity to not only eat their meals in a comfortable position, but the chance to do activities and crafts if they're unable to leave their room.
Having rails around the bathroom keep our patients as independent as possible and gives them a level of dignity if they want to continue doing some of their own personal care.
Our Care Teams are proud of their roles, and the uniforms help to distinguish who's who in the hospice. The uniforms will be comfortable, practical and will identify the various types of care we offer.
The hospice will rely heavily on the goodwill of those willing to give their time for free, either working directly with the patients, within housekeeping or the kitchen. These volunteer tabards and polo shirts will help identify these special roles, as well as being practical and comfortable.
People need to feel welcome at the hospice, whether they're a patient, family member, friend or visitor. Drinks are always available whenever and wherever.

Our kitchen offers home-cooked meals using fresh ingredients and will always try to cater for what the patient fancies to eat. Decent crockery helps present their meal - no matter what it is - in an appetising manner.
