Heath family’s stay at Magnolia House

When Rebecca Heath and her husband Jason arrived at Sheffield Children’s Hospital, finding a place to stay while Luca was in the hospital simply hadn’t crossed their minds. With the hospital being a 40–60 minute drive from their home in Chesterfield and Rebecca unable to drive while recovering from major surgery, the couple were thankful when a nurse presented a solution for them to stay at The Sick Children’s Trust’s Magnolia House. Rebecca said:

“It really was such a wonderful place for us, and I honestly don’t know what we would have done without it. The homely room we were given at Magnolia House had three beds, which meant my three-year-old daughter Isabelle could stay and meet her new baby brother. As I hadn’t seen her in over a week, it also gave us some very important family bonding time, and that meant so much to us.”

“The neonatal unit can be an intense, scary environment, with babies covered in wires and hooked up to monitors. We were worried about how Isabelle would react to this. The playroom and toys at Magnolia House helped so much with this, giving Isabelle a bit of normality when she needed a break from the hospital. She loved it in there.”

During their fifteen-night stay at Magnolia House, the family were able to stay close to baby Luca while he battled various complications, including an infection.

“Magnolia House gave us a safe private space to have time to process and take in everything that was happening. It helped us stay together as a family, which we needed at this difficult time. Being able to just do normal things like sit down and eat a meal together as a family made such a difference. Speaking to other families in the house was a great help and the staff there were lovely.”
