Our day services

Our care goes beyond our wards and includes day services people can use without staying at the hospice. All our day services are free.

Our approach to care is to help people live as well as possible within the limitations of their illness, so we offer a wide range of services which provide emotional, physical and spiritual support enabling someone with an incurable illness to maintain their independence for as long as possible.

Our care will look after their overall wellbeing, covering everything from managing fatigue and sleep, to mindfulness, relaxation techniques, personal matters and coping with anxiety.

We will give the best help we can. Once someone is referred to us by a healthcare professional involved in their care, we will contact them to understand their needs and discuss how we can work together and help them. We’ll take the time to get to know them over a number of sessions and assess which services are best.

Our day services team is made up of qualified nursing staff, complementary and creative therapists, doctors, health care assistants, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social workers, chaplains and volunteers. We have a number of different specialist services and specific clinics that could help and we will provide care in a professional, friendly, relaxed environment. We also have more informal drop-in activities including music sessions (these are prearranged and on a one-to-one basis at the moment).

Our day services are provided as part of overall care, and if necessary, will complement any continued care at home.
