Day services

We welcome adults of all ages to our modern, fully equipped hospice day therapy unit.

We can help you choose the best options to suit your health needs, lifestyle and circumstances. Our services are always free for patients, and many are also complimentary for their family members.

A programme of care tailored to your needs

Our specialists can help with any aspect of your illness and will recommend an individual plan of care.

Your care will focus not only on your physical symptoms but also on helping you to regain control and improve your overall quality of life.

On your first visit you will meet with one of our specialist doctors or nurses to discuss the most appropriate care for you. You are welcome to bring a family member, friend or carer with you to your appointments.

We will agree your individual plan of care with you and suggest services or therapies that are going to be of most help to you, when you need them. This may include:

  • complementary therapies
  • emotional support including counselling and family therapy
  • access to our fully-equipped gym to help you gently exercise
  • hydrotherapy – exercise in our pool
  • art therapy to help you relax or express your feelings - you can see some of the art created at the hospice on our art exhibition page
  • practical help, including financial advice
  • spiritual support

We offer most services on an appointment basis giving you the flexibility to book sessions to suit you. You are welcome to stay longer and perhaps meet other people for lunch.

Complementary therapies

Our wide range of complementary therapies do not replace traditional care but patients often comment on their relaxing qualities and overall benefits.

Therapies include:

Day therapy opening times

Sessions are held on Monday to Friday, from 9am – 5pm.

How to get day therapy care
