This is Jacksplace, our hospice for young people:
Notes to Editors:
Naomi House & Jacksplace are hospices providing respite, community, emergency, end of life and post-bereavement care to 325 life-limited children, young people and their families from across the central south of England.
Naomi House nursing and medical staff provide individualised nursing care that helps to enhance short lives and allows families to make the most of their precious time with their children.
There are 11 children’s bedrooms and a number of family bedrooms at the newly refurbished Naomi House. Additionally, the state of the art building includes spaces for music therapy, art and messy play, a multi-sensory room, a hydrotherapy pool and dedicated spaces for end of life care and post-bereavement support. Naomi House has an experienced family support team offering practical, emotional and spiritual support for the whole family, throughout their child’s life and after death.
Inevitably there are some sad times at Naomi House. On these occasions, Naomi House offers The Butterfly Bedroom; a chilled room in which a child can be laid to rest in the immediate post-death period, and until such time as the family are ready to say goodbye. The charity’s teams helps with funeral arrangements and other such practicalities. Specialist bereavement counsellors, sibling support staff and the hospice Chaplains offer support to families for as long as they are needed.
Many of the children cared for at Naomi House are living longer thanks to advances in medical technology and care. This is why Naomi House opened Jacksplace, a new hospice for teenagers and young people aged 16 to 35. Jacksplace has six bedrooms equipped with specialist beds, hoists and state of the art en-suite bathrooms. Jacksplace offers the same range of care and support available at Naomi House, including family support, an activity team, end of life care and post bereavement support.
Naomi House needs to raise more than £8 million each year in order to run a full service and deliver its plans. The vast majority of the charity’s income comes from the generous donations of individuals, groups and companies. It is this dedicated fundraising that allows the hospices to continue to offer their services to families free of charge.
