Care for Children & Young Adults
Jigsaw is a place of fun and laughter where children and young adults can stay and create memories which will last a lifetime. Our welcoming and safe atmosphere provides a place for children and young adults to receive the care and attention they require.
We provide one to one care for children and young adults with life limiting illnesses, with the facility for up to five children and young adults staying overnight. Our home from home environment allows the nurses to match the children and young adults home routines as closely as possible, ensuring a smooth, relaxing and peaceful transition between home and hospice environments.
Whilst at Jigsaw the children and young adults are able to engage with a wide range of creative and sensory games and activities.
- The multi-sensory room provides place for children and young adults to listen to music, whilst special lighting creates rotating patterns on the walls and ceiling
- The activity room, “The Smoothie Bar”, is packed with arts and crafts products for all ages and abilities. The room also includes a computer, games consoles and a toy cupboard
- The children and young adults are also able to enjoy the secure sensory garden, which includes a water fountain, wheelchair accessible roundabout and raised flower beds.
During their stay at Jigsaw, we also provide the children and young adults with the opportunity to go on a range of different outings. We are very lucky to have lots of amazing places in the local area we are able to visit, including local parks, farm parks and tourist attractions.
