Day Services

Our new Day Services Unit provides beautiful facilities to provide outpatient clinic assessments, aromatherapy massage, well being sessions and a variety of therapies including art and music therapy. Our services are designed to support people and their families, living with the impact of serious untreatable conditions including cancer, motor neurone disease and advanced heart failure. The overall aim is to optimise symptom control and quality of life as well as providing a support system. 

The well being sessions cover a wide range of topics such as gentle exercise, fatigue management, therapeutic gardening, relaxation, information sharing and creativity. We work closely with our Rehabilitation Team and the rest of the multidisciplinary team in the Hospice. 

Please contact us if you would like more information about these services. 

Specialist care

People are often very anxious about coming here, but when they realise how many services we can offer and the level of specialist palliative care we provide, you can see them becoming more reassured that our hospice is a valid option for their specific life-limiting condition.

The services we offer include:

  • Complementary therapies
  • Psychological therapies
  • Music therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Mindfulness
  • Monitoring and stabilisation of symptoms

We try our very best to make our hospice a home away from home. It really is a happy place to be because the staff and patients are like one big family; we make sure all of the patients feel welcome here. Our role isn’t just about clinical care, it’s about lifting our patients’ spirits and making the most of the time that they’re here.
