Following the creation of our family support rooms we've received some tremendous feedback and as the first hospital in the country to have created them we’ve had a lot of requests from people wanting to come and see them.
We're delighted that we are now able to share with everyone exactly what they look like through this short video we've created with the help of Engie, our facilities management company.
Situated on the elderly care wards, the rooms are designed to be a home from home enabling family and carers to stay in the same room overnight and be physically close to their loved ones who are living with dementia or in their final days.

It gives you a real flavour of what the rooms are like and why they work so well. It also includes a short piece from one of our patients who was able to take comfort from one of the rooms in his final days.
To top it all off we’re delighted that these rooms were shortlisted for a Patient Safety Award in the category of dementia care.
We hope you agree that we have created something truly special for our patients.
