Derby Hospitals Charity funds lots of amazing projects each year and our latest is “pop-up bedrooms” for people in their dying hours.
Derby Teaching Hospitals’ end of life care team are setting up the “pop-up bedrooms” for patients as they enter their last few days or even hours of their life.
A large screen will be introduced alongside the length of a patient’s hospital bed with a range of different scenes such as a forest or a sunset. The patients’ last days can also include visits from a special therapy dog.
Music can also be arranged to be performed outside the hospital’s wards.
