Dream Catcher supports James with donation of specialist bed

Dream Catcher was delighted to support James Mitchell with the donation of a specialist rotational chair bed to help him get in and out of bed.

When his partner and carer, Sue Mills, applied for support with the purchase of this life-changing piece of equipment, we did not hesitate in making her dream come true.

James was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease 20 years ago, a degenerative neurological disease that impairs movement, making it difficult to stand up or sit down unaided.

Provided by Braddan-based Just Care Products, the electrically-powered Apollo Saturn bed can be tilted and rotated into a seating position using a remote control.

Before receiving the new equipment, James often slipped onto the floor and had to be helped by paramedics. It’s great to hear this gift is already making a huge difference to James, giving him back some independence.
