Students at the University of Worcester are to benefit from a newly renovated Occupational Therapy facility. A local house on the St John’s campus has been redesigned to include specialised equipment for living independently in the community. All equipment was donated by local manufacturers and suppliers to recreate a home living environment.

As a local manufacturer, Joerns Healthcare in partnership with TPG Disable Aids were proud to help support the students’ learning by donating and installing an Oxford ceiling lift along side mobile patient hoists to help furnish the newly renovated Community Living Environment.

The facilities provide real-life situations to help Health and Society students develop their skills through simulated learning. The redeveloped house adds to the already fantastic facilities at Worcester University including the Clinical Simulation Centre and Mobile Skills Laboratory.
