Patients come to Day Hospice to have some time for themselves and to provide a break for their carers. Here they will receive individual care from our specialist professional team of doctors, nurses, therapists, chaplains and trained volunteers. We can provide comfort, friendship and excellent food!
Complementary therapies, physiotherapy, access to occupational therapy advice, massage and aromatherapy, a relaxing bath, hairdressing, creative therapy with art and activities are all available to provide an enjoyable and supportive day. With regular attendance our team is able to monitor any changes in treatments, symptoms or concerns and will work closely with general practitioners.
A series of Day Hospice sessions will be offered as part of an individual care plan developed with each patient. Read our Welcome to Day Hospice leaflet for more information.
