You may have noticed a bright yellow box located on a wall or inside a telephone box in surrounding villages and towns. These, as many people know, are defibrillators and are an essential piece of equipment for local community schemes to provide ‘Community Access Defibrillation’ (cPAD). The defibrillator will be sited at the Fox and Hounds and this has been made possible by the kind permission and help of the landlord, Jason Allen.
Kathy Reynolds, Chair of Rutland LlNk said: “Having a conversation about end of life choices can be difficult- death is often regarded as a taboo subject. Ensuring We are able to make choices about our Care, treatment and Where we want to die is essential if we are to have a ‘good death’. Knowledge and planning also allows spouses, family members and others to make the most of their time with a loved one.”
