Campaign Story

A manual hoist is used to transfer people with severe disabilities from their wheelchairs to bed and bath. Physical transfer by care staff carries the risk of injury to both the person with a disability as well as the carer.

Rosedon House has one manual hoist to service the needs of 18 residents. Just one hoist is inadequate for the number of residents in need of hoisting, and if it malfunctions then residents must remain on their beds all day. Should this happen, the lack of stimulation from being unable to attend occupational therapy seriously demotivates the morale of the resident, and the immobility increases the risk of painful pressure sores.
