For patients who are living at home, our Day Hospice can provide extra support to manage symptoms, gain confidence at home and help maximise your quality of life.
You can come along and enjoy the friendly and therapeutic environment, you can access creative therapy activities, massage and other supportive therapies. Our expert staff include specialist nurses, doctors, social workers and therapists who work closely as a multi-disciplinary team.
The team can help you with a variety of issues which may include:
- managing symptoms such as pain, sickness, fatigue
- providing emotional support to help you adapt to difficult situation, address anxiety or other concerns
- offering advice about practical and financial issues
- offering information and support in planning for the future
Many people value the support of meeting with others in a similar situation, and your family can feel confident knowing that you are in a safe, caring environment. Patients will normally attend Day Hospice for one day a week for twelve weeks.
Referrals for any of our services can be made via your GP, Macmillan Nurse, District Nurse or specialist nursing team.
