The brief for Roscommon Hospital was to provide two independent areas within the hospital to respond to the growing need for end of life services.
The first was to provide a ‘family room’- a space in which the families of terminally ill patients can find privacy and contemplation at a difficult time. The suite includes overnight sleeping accommodation including WC, shower and small kitchenette and designed to provide comfort in a relaxing homely environment.
The second portion of the brief was to update the existing viewing facilities within the Mortuary. This included the modernisation and updating of facilities to provide an overall image of a warm and welcoming environment.
