Tilting towards progess
HELP of Denia and Marina Alta and the Teulada Moraira Lions Club get together again to purchase two new special TILT shower commode chairs for Hospital La Pedrera, Denia. The chairs enable the patient to be taken into the shower and to be tilted back to ease showering whilst maintaining the patient secure. The chair has a curved head rest and is especially for stroke victims and patients with very little or no upper body use.
The hospital approached HELP President, Candida
Wright to see if the association could help to buy one of these chairs. Since the hospital would be sharing the chair between wards she decided to ask the Teulada Moraira Lions to see if they would like to help too and they responded very quickly to her request with a big, Yes. So two chairs instead of one are now in place.
Hospital La Pedrera, was the local hospital for all of the Marina Alta and
