Worthington Lake Care Home was gifted a new defibrillator in August thanks to Sue Higginson, daughter of late house guest, Betty Higginson.
Betty Higginson was part of the Worthington Lake family for almost half a decade after joining the home in 2019.
As a gesture of appreciation for the care provided to Betty, Sue wanted to treat the staff with a personal gift.
Once Sue got wind of the home’s plans to fund a defibrillator, she decided that in memory of her mum, she would purchase a brand-new defibrillator for the home.
A defibrillator is a medical device used to deliver an electric shock to the heart to restore normal heart rhythm during a cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart suddenly stops beating, and it can be a life-threatening emergency.
