Thank you for taking on the Dry July challenge in 2019 and supporting The Alfred Hospital this year.
Your fundraising for Dry July has enabled The Alfred Hospital to support our Palliative Care Services.
Over the past year, the Palliative Care Service at Alfred Health has been able to provide music therapy for more than 300 patients and families thanks to the support of Dry July. With “Charlie” the harp, Dr Lucy Forrest, Senior Music Therapist at The Alfred visits patients and families around the hospital, playing music to soothe, comfort and relax, bring joy, and also to provide symptom and procedural support as patients undergo treatment and approach end-of-life.
The funding raised this year means Dr Forrest can continue providing this important service which is extremely well received by patients and staff alike.
