Hummingbird House has eight guest in care suites, 5 self-contained family units, a rooftop terrace and garden, pool, multi-sensory room, teen retreat, all abilities accessible bath, craft and play room, large dining and lounge space, rock-climbing wall, big backyard with a treehouse, and a dedicated suite for care at the end of life.
Hummingbird House provides families with a supportive and relaxing environment, as different to a hospital ward as possible, while still ensuring the highest standard of medical care. It aims to be a place where families can rest, recharge their batteries, find shared moments and create memories as a family. It has been designed to help families feel at home, and provide them with the breaks they need to keep going.
Hummingbird House was designed by architects ThomsonAdsett, following extensive consultation with children, families, palliative care staff and national and international children’s hospices to ensure that the design catered to as many of the needs of children living with life-limiting conditions as possible.
