Retirement village buys life-saving defibrillator

First published in by

RESIDENTS at the Rose Garden Retirement Village in Tupsley have raised the £900 needed to buy a easy-to-use defibrillator.

The potentially life-saving piece of equipment uses recorded commands to help the operator and is almost automatic, said the Rose Garden’s Mel Russell.

It is part of a new generation of defibrillator, with residents of Dorstone also acquiring one for their community last month.

Rose Garden residents – who will receive training for the equipment in September – raised funds by taking part in a sponsored walk at their gym.

They were inspired to buy the kit after one of the residents had collapsed in the village's workshop.
