Stunning 'Sealife' Makeover of Isolation Room at Epsom Hospital
Stunning scenes of blue seas and brightly-coloured tropical fish now adorn the walls of an isolation room in the Paediatric Unit at Epsom Hospital, thanks to a recent refurbishment project by children’s charity Momentum.
The refurbished room on Casey Ward now features beautiful underwater sealife images, transforming a previously plain and clinical-looking room into a colourful and upilfting space.
Casey Ward manager Karen Kilday said: “Momentum Children's Charity have transformed yet another room on our lovely ward, this time a beautiful seascape. This will make a real difference to our poorly children and their families who often spend several days in isolation in rooms that can sometimes be uninspiring. Thank you again to Momentum for helping to brighten up this isolation room to help make a hospital stay that little bit more bearable. All the staff on Casey Ward are very grateful for Momentum's support and we can't wait to see how well received it is by our patients and families.”
The latest refurbishment is part of Momentum Children's Charity's ongoing parternship with Epsom Hospital to enhance the healing environment. In the past year the charity has transformed isolation rooms, the playroom, and parents’ Room on Casey Ward.
In addition to refurbishing areas of the Paediatric Department at Epsom Hospital, Momentum Children's Charity provides emotional and practical support to many families in the Epsom area as part of its Family Support Programme, providing therapies such as drama and music therapy, counselling, trips and treats and respite breaks at its two holiday homes in the New Forest and on its canal boat.
