Dechoker donates cost of life-saving equipment to Ex-Armed Forces Care Home Charity on Isle of Wight
A Care Home for Ex-Service Men and Women has become the first to install new, anti-choking equipment on the Isle of Wight for the safety of both staff and residents.
St Vincents in Ryde, which was recently saved from closure, took delivery of the Dechoker last week when a team visited the home and trained staff how to use the device.
Every week in the UK, at least 2 care and nursing home residents die as a result of choking related causes. Since April this year Dechoker has prevented 7 choking deaths, and company aims to save 100 lives by 2022
