After visiting beautiful Ty Gobaith, Hope House’s sister hospice situated near Conwy in North Wales, we really wanted to do something to help this fantastic charity. Ty Gobaith is in a stunning setting, a fitting environment to provide wonderful care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families.
When Ty Gobaith requested funding to upgrade one of their family rooms we were delighted to be able to support them. Our £11,400 grant enabled the hospice to renovate and upgrade their Piws bedroom, making the family room more comfortable as well as updating the ensuite wetroom and providing important equipment for children and young adults using the facilities.
Ann Williams, Head of Care at Ty Gobaith explained what this funding has meant to their hospice.
“Having the “Piws” bedroom refurbished has meant we have been able to increase the flexibility of its use. We can now look after a young adult who would like to play music or watch television late into the night and not disturb the younger children. The new height adjustable sink means that a young person, if able, could access the sink whilst sitting in their wheelchair in the adjoining wet room. There is a work surface for the nursing staff to check medication or write their documentation. The room still looks homely and comfortable so that we can use it for family members to stay if required but more importantly it has oxygen and hoisting equipment enabling the care team to carry out end of life care in this bedroom. We can only thank the Williams Family Foundation for their fantastic generosity which allowed us to carry out this work.”
