Living Well at Cottage Hospice

Patients and loved ones can now also enjoy the benefits of Living Well in Five Ashes, East Sussex. Complementary therapies and relaxation sessions were introduced at our Cottage Hospice last November and the Living Well team is looking forward to working with community groups and local services as they roll out more activities this year.

This is part of wider changes at Cottage Hospice where a more flexible approach to providing care is being introduced.

Kerry Norman, Head of In-Patient Care, explains:

“Families who have used Cottage Hospice to care for loved ones in a home from home environment with the reassurance that help is just beyond the door, have found it truly life changing. The communal, relaxed spaces offer a unique opportunity for families to share experiences, thoughts and fears.

“To give more people the chance to enjoy this special environment Cottage Hospice is becoming nurse led. We are developing a team to care for patients who may not have family to look after them but do not need the complex care offered at our Pembury site. We are also planning to support those who want to die at home, by working with them and their loved ones to gain skills and confidence to stay at home for longer.”
