Marie Curie hospice falls silent on National Day of Reflection

Sarah Mason 1st Apr, 2022

PATIENTS, families and staff at Solihull’s Marie Curie hospice came together to reflect on the Covid pandemic.

To mark the National Day of Reflection, on March 23, the Marsh Lane hospice held a minute’s silence at midday to remember all those who have died during the pandemic.

A video of staff talking about the pandemic and their memories was also shown after the silence to those who gathered round.

The hospice also created a wall of reflection for staff and patients to commemorate all those who have died since the start of the pandemic, whether from Covid or any other cause.

Each leaf on the daffodil represented a memory of that person and took pride of place on the wall.

Jane Murray, family support team and bereavement services manager at the Solihull Marie Curie hospice said: “Although the restrictions may now be gone – for those bereaved during this time their grief is ever present and may only be manifesting itself now.”
