La azotea azul
Labdassence collaborates with the “La Azotea Azul” association founded by El Gancho Infantil. The association was created to allow hospitalised children to have an outdoor area for playing and rehabilitation. That is why La Azotea Azul has arranged agreements with hospitals in Andalusia so that children can have a more pleasant hospital stay.
Medical professionals unanimously agree that an outdoor area where hospitalised children can play or simply recover shortens the hospitalisation period, in addition to the positive effects on the mood of both the children and their families and, therefore, on the illness itself.
The association’s aim is not only to build roof gardens or open play areas but a way of seeing the outside world so that the children can connect with their environment and their loved ones through games because playing cures.
HOSPITAL STATISTICAL DATA
A garden which can be enjoyed by 4,000 children per year, together with their families and friends. Moreover, LA AZOTEA will be for all the sick children in Andalusia (52% in the province of Seville and 48% elsewhere in Andalusia).
The hospital’s school is currently visited by 30-40 children every day, hoping to make the long hospital hours go as fast as possible… Imagine how they would feel if they could be in the sun…
El sillón azul
Labdassence collaborates with the “El sillón azul” association founded by El Gancho Infantil. This association has set a second objective: that the caregivers of hospitalized minors can rest in a completely horizontal position, improving their physical and mental health, helping them to cope with the hospital stays of their children.
Accompanying a family member at night in a hospital is usually hard, but if the hospitalization is prolonged, families suffer more markedly the physical and psychological consequences that care and accompaniment entail. Without a doubt, this situation is much more serious when faced with the hospitalization of a minor.
When it comes to a child, the accompaniment must be continuous (regardless of the severity of the patient). In addition, this task usually falls almost exclusively on one or two people (usually the parents), given the special need for security and affection that this stage of life entails.
Many families have been forced to make the hospital their home for a while, day and NIGHT, so caregivers also suffer the consequences of the hospital routine. And if the parents do not rest … the strength with which they must face the day to day becomes a little more difficult.
Although the possibilities of falling asleep in a hospital will always be limited, a bed certainly offers the possibility of resting in a comfortable position, which helps to rest.
