Story

The Sanctuary will be a 'comfort room' designed in a way that is calming to the senses. The room will be furnished with a variety of sensory items, including therapy balls, weighted blankets and wraps, relaxation bundles with items such as hand held massagers, aromatherapy aides, a selection of relaxation music, and soft, flexible furniture.  

It is important that there is quiet space off the main ward area which can be used to de-stress and promote well-being, as well as to prevent and decrease agitation and aggressive behaviours. Comfort rooms can improve patient experience whilst in hospital but perhaps even more importantly, they can help patients to develop coping skills that are key to staying well when they return home. 

Aston Ward at the Bradgate Mental Health Unit in Glenfield cares for females who need to be admitted to hospital because they are experiencing mental ill-health. The ward cares for people from all over Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, from all walks of life. 

Please support our appeal to create The Sanctuary, which goes above and beyond what is possible within NHS budgets.
