Photo booth created lasting memories for patients at LOROS Hospice
13th April 2018
Patients and carers were grinning from ear to ear on the Day Therapy Unit this week, when a photo booth made its way to the Hospice.
The booth was offered for free to everyone at the Hospice, which gave patients and staff time to have fun playing with props and making silly faces, while capturing lasting memories. Owner of Incredipix, Paul Allen, says his parents Gloria and Ronald were both cared for at LOROS and he wanted to give something back to the Hospice.
“LOROS feels as close to home as you can get, often during the toughest time of people’s lives. My mum and dad were cared for at the Hospice and I will be eternally grateful for the care we received as a family.
“My dad died on the ward at LOROS, and I cannot thank them enough for everything they did for us. LOROS is not what people expect it to be. It’s a nice happy welcoming place, light and airy and full of positivity,” added Paul from Clarendon Park.
“I want to be able to give something back to the hospice and spread some happiness. Patients, carers, families and even staff were joining in, it was lovely to see their beaming smiles.” Photos taken on the day were printed out as lasting keepsakes for friends and family.
Janet Manuel, the Day Therapy and Outpatients Manager was really pleased for the patients.
“Day therapy aims to provide patients and carers with holistic care and support. The focus of our care is to improve the quality of life to those that have a terminal illness,”
“Having a photo booth here, gave patients time to relax and have a bit of fun, and perhaps even forget they’re poorly for a little while. It was a great opportunity for them to enjoy life and create some long-lasting memories for their friends and families. It was a happy smiley afternoon.” added Janet.
