Long term healthcare is not always sufficiently provided for by the National Lottery. The Sue Ryder lottery manages to successfully bridge that gap.
The name Sue Ryder will be familiar to anyone with relatives suffering from long term neurological problems. Typically this includes life changing conditions such as Huntington’s disease, Motor Neurone disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s.
First Class Long Term Healthcare
The Sue Ryder foundation runs a number of Hospices and Neurological centres throughout the UK. They are renowned for delivering first class long term healthcare. In addition these centres also provide support for family members. This may include practical and emotional advice, family bereavement support or spiritual care.
Neurological diseases can be extremely challenging for close family and friends to deal with. First class support is required to enable family members and friends to cope with a very frightening situation.
Hospice and Neurological Care
Sue Ryder provides leading hospice and neurological care. They operate seven hospices and five neurological centres throughout the UK. Dedicated teams of experts operate in the community, delivering the same outstanding levels of care found in Sue Ryder centres.
The range of services that Sue Ryder offers the community are amazing.
- Volunteer friends offering support and home visits.
- Homecare conducted by registered service managers.
- Rehabilitation services provided by trained physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists.
- Self management programmes to help people to cope with life changing conditions.
These are just are just some of the ways that Sue Ryder can be of assistance. Each and every one of these services have a significant impact on people’s daily lives.
