We ask that you bring with you:
- All your current medicines in their original packets or containers
- Toiletries, razors, toothbrush, anything you use on a daily basis
- Nightwear, dressing gown
- Comfortable daywear
- Footwear with non slip soles

Please keep valuable items to a minimum where possible. Our nursing staff will be happy to explain our safe storage options.
Generally you will arrive in the morning and be greeted by a member of our Nursing Team, usually the Nurse who will help you to settle into your room and ensure you are comfortable before continuing to look after you for the rest of the day. You will then be assessed by one of our Nurses and a Doctor. You will be seen be a Doctor each day (including weekends). Each day you will have a named nurse who will look after you.
We will discuss any plans regarding discharge with yourself and your loved ones. You can be discharged to your home, a care home or our Cottage Hospice.
