Newlife's Play Therapy Pod service provides specialist toys that can be therapeutic, developmental and enjoyed by the whole family, on a short-term loan basis.
We operate this as a free service, because we believe that early exposure to this equipment plays an important part in the development of children with all kinds of disabilities.
Care Services Manager Carrick Brown said: "The Play Therapy Pods can assist with delivery of therapies, distract from pain or discomfort and help build relationships and valuable memories. Play can make a difference to the health of children; to their education and development; and help empower and support families."
You are all amazing at Newlife. Having this bed means that Evie can now sleep in a bed rather than her pushchair. Also she is now tolerating feeds overnight which she didn't before. Evie wakes up a happy nourished rested young girl. We are also getting a better nights sleep knowing Evie is so comfortable and safe.
Lewis clearly finds the safespace calming and settled much more quickly at night, he has only had one sleepless night, but it was a noise free one as the safespace prevented him striking the walls and softened his vocalisations. We are deeply humbled by the generosity of Newlife.
The loan of efficiently supplied, effective equipment providing immediate support for terminally ill children - those who just can’t wait!
