Hospice Day Service
The Hospice Day Service provides a welcoming environment to all patients with a terminal illness, their families and carers. We aim to support, enable and empower you to maintain the best quality of life, and continue to lead an active and independent life for as long as possible. Hospice Day Service is a space that allows people to adjust, together or separately, to their situation. It strives to empower patients and their families, through making their own decisions as they would at home. Hospice Day Service promotes flexibility and individualised care tailored to your needs. This includes-:
- Planning for the Future
- Creative Arts
- Complementary Therapies
- Occupational Therapies
- Support for carers and families
- Creative Music
- Community Choir
- Information and Guidance
You can refer yourself to Hospice Day Service by calling or emailing using the contact details below or by clicking here. If you would prefer to, you can make a referral through your GP or other healthcare professionals. Firstly, you’ll be contacted by one of the Hospice Day Service Team and invited to come along for an introductory assessment, or just for a look around. Then we will agree a plan with you, of when you’ll be able to attend and which therapies, support and groups you would like to access.
The Hospice Day Service is open from 10.00am – 5.00pm, Monday to Friday. We have a variety of groups throughout the week you can access (click to see the Hospice Day Service timetable of groups) or private individual appointments with some of our other services.
Where possible we ask you to make your own travel arrangements to and from Hospice Day Service. For patients who really cannot arrange transport we are sometimes able to arrange a volunteer driver dependant on your transportation and mobility needs.
