  • Need

    Need

    As our new building will house therapists, counselling and out patient departments it is important to our patients with life limiting illness that the external environment is as calm and tranquil as the internal one in the new building. When the building is finished the area around it will need to also be transformed

    Solution

    The project will allow us to a quiet sanctuary including a pond, seating area, landscaping and nature interpretation area to attract birds & other wildlife where our patients can feel calm and relaxed and spend quality time with their families or just enjoying nature both before and after appointments. This will allow us to provide a beautiful external setting once our new building is completed

  • Impact

    Impact

    The Hospice will appear more welcoming and therefore improve the quality of life for our patients and their families even though that may be a short time. Often patients are frightened of taking that first step and a beautiful external environment should help encourage more local people to benefit from the services that the Hospice provides.
