Domino is a small unit within the Children’s Psychiatric Service at the Clinic St Jean
The creation of more welcoming and inviting areas within the Clinic’s different services e.g. dialysis, accompanying family accommodation.
The Foundation gives us the support necessary to provide the children with a safe, secure and relaxing environment « if we didn’t have this aid, life would be a lot more difficult to manage. The children would be a lot more aggressive…….. ». The opportunity to express themselves would be reduced and their physical suffering would increase.
The Foundation provides the funding for a ‘first line support’ assistant who liaises between the parents/family and the medical staff « This link provides real value to the Psychiatric Service at St Jean. Without it, observing these young children in relation to their families would be a lot more difficult ».
The Foundation provides the funds necessary to help patients in financial difficulty « we had a patient VIPO who needed heart surgery. The Foundation, through it’s financial support, enabled us to perform this operation and provides us with a platform to continue to do so » – Dr. Bettendorff.
