Rehabilitation is about helping people to try and achieve their goals. Some people may be recovering from the effects of treatment they have had, and others may be suffering with a permanent change in their ability. The rehabilitation team uses its specialist knowledge to improve your symptoms, such as pain, and strength or provide advice or equipment to help you adapt to your new situation. We also support your family by listening to their concerns and advising them on practical issues.

Nightingale House Hospice is a registered charity; we are not part of the NHS. We provide our services free of charge to all patients. It costs around £3 Million to run the Hospice each year which equates to nearly £8,000 per day. We only receive around 22% of our running costs from the Welsh Assembly Government and the Health Board. To ensure the Hospice keeps running we need to fund the remaining 78% from our own fundraising activities which includes support from our local community and gifts from peoples Wills.

How to find us

We are based on Chester Road in Wrexham. Whilst we attempt to provide car parking space for our patients and their visitors, from time to time our car park is full. On these occasions we kindly ask that you do not double park/park on double yellow lines (even if you have a disabled badge) as this restricts access for ambulances/emergency vehicles and deliveries.

There is street parking available within a short distance of the Hospice.
