We urgently need your help. Please help create a clinically safe and aesthetically pleasing environment for our colleagues, our patients and their families.
Room to Care Appeal
You can provide privacy, dignity and comfort for our patients.
At our Erdington site, we have a number of multiple occupancy rooms with shared bathroom facilities, where the standard layout and decor is old-fashioned, jaded and in need of modernising.
We have received direct feedback from patients and their carers requesting not to be cared for in those rooms, as they are not to the standard needed by people living with a terminal diagnosis.
We must be able to provide people with the privacy, dignity, comfort and relaxation they deserve.
Create a clinically safe and aesthetically pleasing environment for our colleagues, our patients and their families.
Single occupancy rooms offer patients autonomy in their surroundings, making those last few weeks or days more personal, and enabling them to spend time creating memories with loved ones, surrounded by the people and things most important to them.
COVID-19 also highlighted the need for individual washing and toilet facilities within single occupancy rooms due to the high risk of cross infection.
Without you, Birmingham Hospice would not be able to care for local people in need of our services.
We need to raise £200,000 to achieve our goal. Today, we are asking you to give what you can to support patients and their families at the most difficult time.
Without your ongoing support, people at the end of life would not be able to get the care they need. We are eternally grateful for your help.
Thank you for all of your support, now and in the future.
Your support will help families like Shantal's
In August last year, Shantal’s dad, Peter, was admitted to one of our Inpatient Units, to be cared for by our specialist teams.
Peter was able to be cared for in a single occupancy room and it truly made all the difference to his care and the final moments he shared with his family. With being able to use the ensuite and sleep in the bed next to him, June, Peter’s wife, was able to stay at the hospice the entire time.
During the day, Peter’s bed was often pushed outside so he could enjoy the beautiful gardens that surround the hospice.
