April newsletter

Our April newsletter starts with a bonkers challenge for the Felgains team. But it's all good, as we're raising money for East Anglia's Children's Hospices. So we're sure the sweat will be worth it...

Tackling Snowdon and impressing the CQC…
This April we’ve been busy celebrating a CQC win, as well as preparing to raise funds as well as eyebrows with an epic mountain challenge.

Hello everyone,
 
 
We hope you had a wonderful Easter break, and that you managed to get into nature and enjoy the sunshine. Although, for three of our intrepid team members, a quick jaunt outdoors just wasn’t enough. Instead, they were gearing up for a slightly more challenging adventure…

P.S. to the lovely people who worked the bank holidays to keep everything spinning, HUGE thanks from the rest of us.
 
 
 
Raising money for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices
 
 
This month, three brave souls from the Felgains team have been preparing to climb Snowdon – with a Raizer Emergency Lifting Chair in tow.
 
Why? It’s all to raise vital funds for EACH. Sam, Harvey and Barry are the adventurous trio who’ll be tackling the mountain. And considering that training has so far comprised of a few pavement walks and a stroll along the beach (oh, and a quick pedal around the office...), we think they’ll need all the encouragement they can get.

Why not give them a boost by donating now?

Congratulations to Home Instead
 
It was great to hear that the East Devon branch of Home Instead Senior Care had achieved an Outstanding rating from the CQC. The domiciliary care agency have recently integrated the Raizer into their team, and it’s paid off, with the CQC praising the move as “innovative”. Well done, all.

What to expect from a Raizer demo?
 
Did you know we offer free, no-obligation demonstrations of our Raizer? If so, you might have wondered what a demo actually involves. Read our blog to find out how long a demo takes, who’d be welcome, who from Felgains would be coming along, and whereabouts in the UK we operate.

One year later: same concerns
 
It’s been a whole year since we published our thoughts on whether single-handed care could help improve the state of social care, as well as the possible impact of Brexit. 12 months on and we still don’t have the social care green paper and Brexit is yet to be resolved. But we still think that single-handed care has an important role to play.

And finally...
 
 
This month, BBC newsreader George Alagiah spoke about his guilt when using disabled toilets to change his stoma bag. Alagiah felt people would judge him, as his disability is invisible. Do you think reminders – like the ones printed on accessible toilets doors at Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium – are needed to dispel stereotypes?
 
 
 
That's all from us for now. Take care and speak soon,

The Felgains Team

March newsletter

In our spring edition we explore why dehydration is such a common problem for the elderly, lend a Raizer to Naidex and launch our first video equipment guide. You'd be as mad as a March hare to miss it.

February newsletter

We make the big time in our February newsletter, as the Raizer gets a starring role on BBC South. We also introduce our new range of continence control pants and share some tips on beating your budget.

January newsletter

In the first newsletter of the new year, we shake-off the January blues with a VENDLET success story. We also bring it home with a review of the latest DFG report, plus reveal our new home adaptations partner.

December newsletter

As we wrap up 2018, December's newsletter is a look back at our best bits from the past year. And yule be amazed at what we achieved together. Seriously, snow joke. You sleighed it.

November newsletter

As the air turns crisper we get the blood pumping with an epic team challenge as well as warming our hearts by welcoming a little visitor. We also explore the importance of good hygiene facilities in schools and reveal our exclusive Raizer offer...

October newsletter

We don't think Halloween affected October's newsletter at all... We kick off with a bed made from barbed wire before declaring that WE. WANT. YOUR. BRAINS. In a 'good ideas' kind of way, though. Not a bloodthirsty zombies kind of way...

September newsletter

This edition is dedicated to every single person who's been affected by dementia. We bake a LOT of cake for the Alzheimer's Society, explore whether an accepted wisdom in dementia care is true, and cosy up to a retro ambulance.

August newsletter

August proves a big month as we acquire a fresh-faced new starter as well as (actually, no spoilers here, you'll have to read to find out!). We also salute a group of concert-goers who remind us that the act of caring takes many forms.

July newsletter

Summer reveals our silly side as we compete in a Raizer race: boys versus girls. We also explore the MANULET range of positioning aids and meet Lenny - an old-fashioned barber warming the hearts of men living with dementia.

June newsletter

In our first ever news round up, we attempt to summarise all the wonderful stuff that came out of the Single-handed Care Summit, reveal the OPLET Patient Turning System, and ask the question: driverless wheelchairs, yes or no?
