When we urgently needed to replace worn out mattresses in the frail care section at John Dunn House, we knew exactly who to turn to – friends like you!
Even though the special mattresses needed for bedridden elders cost a hefty R2 700 a piece, you didn’t hesitate – with many caring supporters donating the entire cost of one, or even two mattresses!
Thanks to your incredible generosity, we were able to replace all 55 mattresses in the unit – making sure our frail elders are comfortably supported. Best of all, there is no need to turn occupants every two hours – as was previously the case – to prevent bed sores. Our elders now get a solid night’s sleep with nothing to disturb their rest. Bless you for your kindness.
So impressed have we been by the new “bubble” mattresses, that our goal is to replace the old mattresses in the frail care unit at John Conradie House as well! Designed specifically for use in old age homes, these pressure reducing mattresses not only prevent bed sores, they’re also x-ray translucent and suitable for CPR. Please contact us if you are able to help fund this important need.
