Each Day Hospice offers all our patients an opportunity to meet and share feelings and experiences with other people in similar situations, in a safe and friendly environment.

The Day Hospice team, which includes health and social care professionals, complementary therapists and volunteers can enable the patient to have some independence, find new hobbies, enjoy a cooked meal and have a lot of fun whilst making new friends.

At the same time, the team are on hand to discuss any medical questions, assist in making medical appointments if necessary and to discuss symptoms and offer professional advice.

For patients that require transport, our drivers are able to collect and return patients home at the end of the day.

For more information feel free to ring us on 01633 851051.

All Patients have regular reviews to ensure we are meeting their expectations and also to look at activities outside of our day hospice when the time comes for review and discharge.

The Chaplaincy Service

Through our Day Hospice we offer a Chaplaincy service on a monthly basis.

Whether you have a strong religious faith or not, the Chaplain is here to help support you. The Chaplain attends Day Hospice on a prearranged date, usually the first week of the month, on a very informal basis.
