The Work of Sue Ryder

Club members attended a very informative talk about the inspiring and extensive work of the charity, Sue Ryder. Founded by Margaret Susan Ryder, a compassionate and caring humanitarian, to help displaced people after the Second World War, the scope of the  work of the organisation has widened to support those with complex needs and life threatening conditions across the UK and internationally.

Today Sue Ryder’s dedicated staff including Sue Ryder Nurses, registered mental health nurses, care assistants, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists support people through the most difficult times of their lives giving them the care they need including support following bereavement. The local facility, Dee View Court, is the charity’s purpose built specialist Neurological Care Centre providing expert care and rehabilitation for adults with neurological conditions, with a total of 42 fully accessible en suite rooms with two supported living apartments. By focusing on what a person can do rather than what they can’t, staff support people to live their lives as fully as possible.
