It is essential that all Nightingale House visitors wear face masks when visiting the hospice and when moving around the building.
Nightingale House Hospice Day Unit – Helping people to adjust to their illness and increase their self confidence. People who attend the day unit receive care from a team of professionals as well as support from people who may be in, or have had, experience of a similar situation.
The day unit at Nightingale House Hospice is open between 10am and 3pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. A referral* is required from a GP, consultant or specialist nurse. People living with life limiting conditions may be referred* as an outpatient for symptom management, rehabilitation, specialist advice and support. Following referral* from a health professional we make contact to offer an initial assessment with one of our specialist team. During the assessment any concerns can be addressed. Care can then be provided based on individual needs.
The care offered is holistic and life enhancing. Attendance is reviewed on a regular basis. Support can be offered in a variety of ways following discharge.
The services we offer include:
• Complementary therapies
• Psychological therapies
• Monitoring and stabilisation of symptoms (or symptom management) and support through outpatient attendance or Day Unit
