Sometimes the best medicine is simple – it’s Mum & Dad.
Hospitals themselves can be very scary places for children, and knowing that Mum and Dad are close by can make a real difference. Keeping the family unit together during these stressful times is also incredibly important to help the family cope emotionally.
Hospital family accommodation provides ‘home from home’ for families whose children are receiving vital medical care.
With only 3 dedicated centres of Mitochondrial Disease expertise in the UK, many families have to travel long distances to seek specialist care. The Lily Foundation are proud to fund family accommodation in London, Newcastle and Oxford.
