Our 'Rainbow Suite', is available to be used by any family suffering with the loss of a child aged between 0-5 years. We offer end of life care in our Rainbow Room, and this facility is also available for children who have recently passed away elsewhere. The family suite consists of a temperature controlled Rainbow Room for the baby to be laid to rest, a private television lounge for the family to spend time in, a private kitchen area, and a private double bedroom with an ensuite shower room. There is also a separate larger disabled bathroom.
This is all to give the family as much privacy and time as they need, whilst also having access to our trained staff at all times. This suite allows the family to stay with the child from the time of passing, right up until the funeral. We can also assist with practical things such as registering the death, sorting funeral arrangements, counselling, supporting siblings and creating memory boxes for the family to keep.
Here at Middlesbrough we also have our own chapel, which families are able to use in the sad event of their child's funeral if they so wish.
