In-Patient Unit Wishlist
We want to create an environment which allows patients and families to easily access our internal and external surroundings from the comfort of their own private room. Our refurbishment will produce 8 single rooms with en-suite wet-rooms. A fresh, modern and flexible design approach to décor, heating and lighting we hope will support patients to experience those precious moments with their families in a more beneficial setting.
Natural light is at the forefront of the design with windows and patio doors, accessing individual and communal garden areas. This will allow patients and families to be within reach of a natural and calming environment.
We are looking for your support in purchasing specialist equipment and everyday items required to create such an individual room environment. We have produced a ‘wish list’ below of these items and their costs. No matter how big or small your support is, we will be extremely grateful.
Can you help us by purchasing an item for one of our rooms? These items will directly benefit our patients and their families living with a life limiting illness. You can make a donation to purchase an item by completing the donation form below.
