From pampering to pets to raise spirits in hospital...

This is the sort of thing that would be good in care homes too.

I heard about this charity on the Jeremy Vine show.  I remember there being volunteers who read to the patients.  This gave the relatives a break and I remember there being particular enjoyment at being read poetry.  Older generations used to learn poems off by heart at school.

They are looking for ideas to help make stays in hospital a better experience.  If you found something that made a great difference to you or someone you know. Do let them know.
