Caring for the caregivers

By Sibille Buehlmann | Rehabilitation Manager

One of the most important factors in a patient’s recovery, after a disability, is the involvement and support of the family. Usually the patient’s family are the caregivers and play a very important role in the rehabilitation process. Our patients all have at least one family member with them during rehabilitation. Because of their vital role during rehabilitation, it is important to us that they as well are taken care of.

Over the past two weeks, we had an incredible team from the UK come and work with us to improve the daily living situation of our patient’s families. They built a beautiful covered kitchen area, where food can be prepared in a dry, clean environment. It is even wheelchair accessible if patients want to cook for themselves!

A new paved area allows them to sit and spend time with their family members, in a nice surrounding with shade and new plants. By giving them more space, and area to “feel at home” while caring for their family members, we hope to make it a bit easier on them to take on the task of learning how to care and cope with someone after a disability before they go back to their homes.

We were also delighted to have rehab patients, both current and former, be part of the hospital's 10 year celebrations in January. It was a celebration for everyone who has both contributed to, and benefitted from, our hospital in the last 10 years. Patients like Fritzner were present who battled life threatening injuries and learnt how to cope without the use of his legs, going onto represent Haiti at the World Hand-cycling Championships. He is now a paid trainer at the inclusive onsite gym and is an important part of hospital life. These are the success stories we are celebrating in our 10th Anniversary Year. 

Thank you so much for making this possible!
