We are not just here to provide care for the babies, but to support the whole family through the challenges that they face. Our nurses are trained and on hand to provide counselling, support & advice to the families at any time (even in the middle of the night). We also provide bereavement support during the most difficult time of anyone's life, dealing with the loss of a child. No one can imagine how hard it must be to go through this, but our Nurses are trained to provide support in the most sensitive and effective way.
End of Life Care - Rainbow Room
Our family suite, is available to be used by any family suffering with the loss of a child aged between 0-5 years. We offer end of life care in our Rainbow Room.The family suite consists of a temperature controlled 'Rainbow Room' for the baby to be laid to rest, a communal living area with tv for the family to spend time in, a private kitchen with dining table and a double bedroom with ensuite shower room. This is all to give the family as much privacy and time as they need, whilst also having access to our trained staff at all times. This suite allows the family to stay with the child from the time of passing, right up until the funeral. We can also assist with practical things such as registering the death, sorting funeral arrangements, counselling, supporting siblings and creating memory boxes for the family to keep.
Bereavement Support Group
In conjunction with Child Bereavement UK, we hold a monthly support group (commencing 29th January 2019) which is held at the hospice. This runs as a confidential closed group, over 6 months, meeting once a year and is for anyone that has lost a child, and they do not need to have attended the hospice. You are welcome to just listen in if you wish, or if you feel able, share your experiences about the journey of grief.
