Living Well social groups

Coronavirus update: (17th March) Living Well services have temporarily switched to a virtual model, offering support remotely, for example via video calls, telephone, virtual clinics, etc.  All patients supported by the Living Well Team will be contacted by St Richard’s Hospice. 

Meet others, relax and have fun in our drop in social groups. These are free monthly sessions for people with a serious progressive illness & their carers and include Mindfulness, Love Books, Knit and Natter and Making your life easier with Technology.  There is no need to book.

Referral: Individuals do not need a referral to attend social groups. Please note the social groups will not include one-to-one medical advice.

Please note the adapted t’ai chi’ drop ins are for people who have already completed an adapted t’ai chi course with the Living Well programme.

For information sessions: These are free six-weekly drop in information sessions for people with a serious progressive illness & their carers. The introductory classes include Understanding pain and its management.

Referral: Individuals do not need a referral to attend the information sessions. There is no need to book.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.

The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.
