Every patient deserves a comfortable bed
"Every patient deserves a comfortable bed and even more so when they embark on their end-of-life journey. This is one of the most important aspects of the care we provide and a philosophy we carry through to not just our In-Patient Unit patients, but also to our community patients," says Tersia Burger, CEO at Stepping Stone Hospice. "We are therefore eternally grateful to Vitafoam for the wonderful donation of 25 hospital mattresses as part of their corporate social responsibility programme," says Tersia.
Kobus Horn, factory manager at Vita Foam, whose mother-in-law passed away at Stepping Stone Hospice a few months ago, explains that he was so grateful for the "wonderful care, love and patience showed not only to her, but also to us as a family. I wanted to help Stepping Stone Hospice by giving something back and started the process with Vitafoam that eventually led to this donation," he says.
Vita means "life" and Vitafoam's promise is to bring "comfort in your life". "We certainly hope that our mattresses will bring comfort to the hospice patients and we hope to assist with more donations in the future."
