Imagine for a moment you are elderly and live alone or maybe in an aged care home. It’s the middle of the night when you get up for a drink of water and on your way back to bed you fall. Scared and alone, lying on the floor, you call for help which may or may not arrive quickly.
Eventually help arrives and you are taken by ambulance to your nearest hospital for assessment and treatment. You are told you are staying the night, but you have nothing with you, no toothbrush, deodorant or something sweet for comfort. As you wonder what to do, a nurse comes in with a Smiles 2U Essentials pack. It has everything you need. Just enough to put your mind at rest and provide some comfort during the night.
Without your donations, providing our essentials packs to the most vulnerable members of our community would not be possible. So thankyou!! This new initiative commenced from this week. If you would like to buy a pack, please follow the link below:
