The Sanctuary, University Hospital Hairmyres, 2-30 November.
COVID-19 imposed many restrictions on the way families could be with loved ones especially at the end of their lives. This has had a profound impact upon the grieving process; leading to expressions of increased sense of guilt, helplessness and loss. This also holds true for staff who have felt more acutely the deaths of their patients sometimes whilst grieving for their own family or friends.
In response, The ‘Echoes Project’ seeks to provide a range of ways to enable people to express their deep sense of grief and loss. Reflecting the uniqueness of individuals, a variety of options will be provided for people to articulate their feelings through words or a visual image; a butterfly, heart or ribbon.
Displays will remain in the Sanctuary for at least one year.
