Chair Beds for Carers

Wellington Blood and Cancer Centre knows that catering for patients’ relatives is important, as many relatives feel they need to stay with their loved one at the hospital even over night and for several days at a time.

The centre is using some funds from Dry July 2013 to purchase chairs that turn into beds for carers and relatives of cancer and haematology patients staying on Ward 5 North.

The need to stay close can stem from cultural or religious beliefs, as well as reflect the close knit nature of families during challenging times. It can make a world of difference to patients knowing their loved ones are close by.
