Scandinavian-inspired hospice

In Glasgow a Scandinavian-inspired hospice has been opened, which is based on a – familiar, but not always applied – philosophy ‘to offer patients quality of life in a place that looks and feels like home’.

The design, following the ‘Sengetun model’, is designed and built in such way, that offers patients the ability to feel at home in a bright, open space, which also allows them privacy when required, with clinical and medical assistance sitting firmly in the background. The goal of the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice has always been that “where it may not be possible to add days to lives, we aim to add life to days”.
