Comfort & CareIn some moments, the small things are actually the big things.
Improving the hospital experience for patients and families at the QEII.
Last year, our Coronary Care Unit (CCU) team was one of 44 departments who received a QEII Foundation Comfort and Care grant.
Donors, like you, enabled the purchase of much-needed furniture for our CCU Family Room; a space where families spend long hours and overnights, anxiously awaiting news while their loved one receives life-saving cardiac care.
This space will be home to new comfortable chairs – increasing the amount of seating for families and allowing a patient’s loved ones to rest and stay close by, 24 hours a day. When your spouse or parent is in critical condition right down the hall and news can change in an instant, these little comforts matter. It’s just one example of the impact you make possible when you support these grants.
When you support the QEII Foundation’s Comfort and Care grant program today, you’ll help fund items like:
FAMILY ROOM FURNITURE offering families and friends a comfortable space to rest
WARM BLANKETS offering families and friends a comfortable space to rest
SOUND MACHINES bringing ocean waves to the bedside
CHARGING STATIONS reducing anxiety surrounding an often-forgotten item
HEALTH EDUCATION supporting 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals on their care journey
STARLIGHT PROJECTORS simulating a night sky around a hospital bed
TRANSLATION DEVICES connecting patients to interpreters through video calls
DONORS MAKE IT POSSIBLE
Since 2005, more than $1.77 million in Comfort and Care grants have been awarded to frontline healthcare teams. 100 per cent donor-funded, these grants would not be possible without the extraordinary support of our community.
