We supported Tŷ Olwen, who provide Palliative Care Services in Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot.
Tŷ Olwen care for patients suffering from life-limiting illnesses such as cancer, Motor Neurone Disease, advanced organ failure, AIDS and Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease.
Whilst they cannot offer a cure for patients, the specialist palliative and, in some cases, end of life care Tŷ Olwen provides is all about improving quality of life to ensure they are pain free, comfortable and peaceful for as long as they need it. The support can be anything from symptom control, pain relief, blankets to keep warm in their own homes or even respite for friends and families.
We have pledged and provided 100 shawls, 100 blankets and 50 twiddle muffs/lap mats. To find out more about Tŷ Olwen please check out their their page here
