UNITED CARIBBEAN - Carriacou health care


United Caribbean is focuse on health care for the young and the elderly. This page remains under construction however to date one Carriacou nursing home has aready been identified as in need and another has recently been visited by YWAM and is under assessment.

Hill Top Residential home overlooks the beautiful Hillsborough harbour with distant views of Union Island.

Run by Mrs Lyvon Phillips a Social Worker who for the last two years has done a wonderful job as 'nurse in charge' while Hill Top seeks a Matron.

 

Located next to the local Roman Catholic church with the future Matron's residence between the two buildings

Here I found 16 aged Kayaks, all clean, smiling and well cared for a credit to the overworked, underpaid care workers.

This residential home is home to one of the greatest Big Drum dancers known in the history of Carriacou.

 

 

The old fashion 'Florence Nightingale' ward style sleeping accommodation reminded me of my training hospital in Farnborough, Kent some 30 years ago. Except here there was no way to protect privacy and no screens to maintain dignity. Urgent help is needed here to assist this band of hard working nurses.
The communal lounge area was clean and welcoming, but the furnishings were well worn and in need of refurbishment.
The chairs were damaged and hard and put the residence at risk, of the 16 only 6 were residential the remaining 10 were nursing home category. 2 had amputees, 4 were severely demented, 5 incontinent, the home is in urgent need of incontinent pads, Kylie sheets and over mattresses. The luxury of a ripple mattress was something they only dreamed about. Miraculously only 2 residence had pressure sores, which under the circumstance was a credit to the care staff and the supervision of the acting Matron.
