Relatives’ Rooms

The Relatives Rooms serve two purposes: to provide a private space where staff can talk to families with a calming atmosphere and to give family members a place to go when they need rest and respite.

The environment should not leave distorted memories of the place the news is received or of the person sharing the difficult news.

By focussing on colour, lighting, music and art in each space, the Relatives Rooms Project aims to provide a safe haven in which relatives can digest what they are being told and give them the time and space to formulate the questions they will need to ask at this difficult and distressing time.
