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.
