Comfort Kits

Our Comfort Kits are designed for older cancer patients, aged 65+, who may have different needs to younger people undergoing treatment.

Comfort Kits contain items that provide warmth and comfort, such as a microwavable hot water bottle, heat pads to ease aches that may come as a result of treatment, and a travel pillow to make spells in hospital that bit easier. See below for an outline of what’s included in each Kit.

Old Man Cancer Comfort Kit

Magnifying Glass

The small print on labels can be difficult to read, so the included magnifying glass ensures labels and instructions are easier to read.

Inflatable Travel Pillow

This is included to aid rest and sleep if enduring spells in the hospital.

Notebook and Pen

Keeping track of hospital visits and doctors appointments can be a challenge, so a small notebook and pen are just what’s needed to keep on top of it all.

Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel

During treatment, immune systems can be weakened, so taking steps to kill germs is important.

Packet of Tissues

Cancer treatment can be emotionally draining. A packet of tissues is included for when times are tough for patients and their families.

Microwaveable Hot Water Bottle

This is a safer version of a hot water bottle. It is made of a warmable material that is heated in the microwave so doesn’t involve filling with boiling water. It is included to aid sleep and rest on a chilly night.

Microwaveable Hot Pack

Cancer treatment and long hospital stays can leave you with aches and pains. This microwaveable hot pack can be heated up to keep you toasty warm and relaxed, wherever you are.

Sherbet Lemon Sweets

People undergoing chemotherapy treatment often experience a dry mouth and an unpleasant metallic taste, and these are a popular way to alleviate this symptom.

Thick, Toasty Warm Socks

People undergoing treatment can experience very cold extremities. These thick, soft bed socks are included to warm them up, and make them feel more cosy and comfortable.

Nausea Relief Wrist Bands

These comfortable wrist bands are clinically proven to relieve nausea and motion sickness which can be a side-effect of cancer treatment.

Canvas Drawstring Bag

All items arrive in a handy drawstring bag, which is perfect for carrying all the essentials.
