DIGNIFIED LIVING JOINS UP WITH SUE RYDER TO SUPPORT SUE RYDER WHEATFIELDS HOSPICE “40 for 40” CLUB.

Posted by Paul Johnson in News, Sue Ryder Wheatfields

We at Dignified Living are delighted - and proud - to announce that in 2018 we will be helping to raise funds for Wheatfields Hospice in Leeds by joining their “40 for 40” club.

This year sees Wheatfields celebrate their 40th anniversary and the 40 for 40 club has been established to help raise valuable funding by encouraging 40 businesses to raise a minimum of £1000 each throughout 2018.

Dignified Living’s Steve Worsnop has experience of the wonderful care provided by the Wheatfields staff both in the Hospice and supporting people in their own homes. “The dedication and care of the folk at Wheatfields is amazing and it makes a huge difference to the lives of both patients and their families at what is a very difficult time. My family has had first hand experience of this and cannot speak highly enough of the Wheatfields team. The Hospice needs to raise over £2 million a year to fund the care they provide and when we heard of the launch of the “40 for 40” club we had no hesitation in signing up. We have a number of events planned and would be disappointed not to beat the £1000 target”.

Dignified Living sell a range of mobility products and living aids to help the less able in their daily life. “Our aim is to make life as easy as possible for those who aren’t as young, mobile or able as they used to be” said Steve

As well as running Dignified Living Steve is also a Professional Reiki Practitioner, and volunteers at the hospice two days a month as a Complimentary Therapist in the day unit. "When you see the great work done by the hospice staff and the positive effect it has on those in their care, you realise how vital it is to help raise the huge amount of money needed to fund that care. Whilst they accept that they cannot change the outcome for their patients and their families the work they do can change the journey. That fits very closely with our ethos at Dignified Living where we are committed to selling products that help older, chronically ill or less able people stay mobile and carry out routine tasks that most if us take for granted. In doing so we believe we can help them retain their independence, dignity and respect".
