Reflected legacy at Liverpool Hospital - funded by Dry July

Reflected legacy is a groundbreaking arts and health program at Liverpool Hospital. Led by visual artist Flutter Lyon, this project compliments the holistic care of cancer patients in palliative care, while enhancing and changing the physical environment for patients, families and staff on the ward.

Why the program exists

Connection.insight.healing.

When we tell our stories, it gives us a way of sharing and reflecting upon the life we are living, free expression and story telling offers a deepened sense of connection to the value and meaning of our individual and shared life experiences.

It can bring comfort, celebration and beauty during challenging time in our lives, encouraging the recall of memories and key points in our life that we have felt free, joyous, loving and love, strong and hopeful. By remembering what we have done and seeing the powerful nature of our human experience, it can help empower us to find the strength and bravery we might desire now.

What the Program Does

This powerful experience, when taken into the palliative care space, provides tangible outcomes

- patients report improvements to their mood, pain management, appetite and sleep patterns;

- families report feeling uplifted and more connected; and

- staff report new insights into patient care and a greater sense of care, support and resilience within the ward environment 

Who the Project is For

Patients and loved ones engaged in the Palliative Care services at Liverpool Hospital.
