Our charity has made big changes to our Oxygen Therapy service to keep helping local people with serious and long term health challenges during the coronavirus pandemic.
Oxygen Therapy helps many people to reduce pain, fight infection, boost energy and heal faster. It can help people with cancer, fibromyalgia, ME, neurological conditions and leg or feet ulcers. During the current times of social distancing, regular energy boosts and pain reduction are even more vital, helping independence and mobility.
Our Centre helps people with conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Cancer, ME and many more. Anyone with any serious health issue is welcome.
During the current, extraordinary times, this support remains available thanks to the dedication and determination of the charity’s team, including volunteers and staff.
Roger Devereux, Oxygen Operator, explains: “The people who come here for Oxygen Therapy really need it. Some are absolutely reliant upon it. I just want to help them – it’s as simple as that. One lady told me that her oxygen sessions are the only thing keeping her going. Another person told me that his life is so much better for having regular Oxygen Therapy. I’m determined that, with our strict safety measures in place, we should stay open and help people for as long as we can.”
A reduced number of sessions are available as part of these safety measures. These are available to new and existing customers alike.
One client said: “Oxygen helps make my MS life easier, gives me energy… it’s a real feel good factor. During my weekly sessions I feel the relief to the pains I have in my legs, this really helps me get through each week. My memory is also a lot sharper. I would really notice a big difference if I could not come. So I’m really grateful that the centre has managed to keep running oxygen sessions and appreciate the necessary safety measures they have had to put in place”
“We intend to stay open and help people for as long as we can do so safely’” says Mark Boscher, one of our Trustees. “This is possible due to the commitment and support of our team – we are extremely grateful to everyone involved with ensuring that Oxygen Therapy remains available. The benefits offered are truly essential to the people we help.”
