Visitors continue to be welcome on the In-Patient Ward – patients may designate visitors and individual circumstances are taken into account for each family.
Cottage Hospice is being kept as a ‘COVID free site’, and we are testing all patients and visitors for COVID before they are admitted to Cottage Hospice. The Family Caregiver model is in place at Cottage Hospice, meaning patients are cared for by their loved ones.
Hospice Outreach Service is operating as normal, supporting patients via telephone calls and visits. The Counselling & Support Service is offering counselling via video calls.
Volunteers are working from home, but are returning to our buildings where it is safe to do so. Shop Volunteers are also returning to our shops. Volunteers provide vital support to us, so we look forward to welcoming everyone back.
Members of the workforce are working from home where possible, however our buildings continue to be COVID secure so that staff that cannot work from home can still complete the essential work that they do.
We have a robust plan in place to help and support patients or family members exhibiting symptoms of COVID and are providing our workforce with protective equipment as required. Regular testing is available for the whole workforce and testing is available for staff, volunteers, patients and those important to them if needed.
All of our Charity Shops are open Monday to Saturday, 10am – 4pm.
