In-patient care

If you need extra care and attention our specialist team may be able to help relieve your immediate problems such as pain or breathlessness. They will make sure you are as comfortable as possible.

Our in-patient unit has 22 beds offering single en-suite rooms and shared accommodation. All rooms open onto a landscaped garden with gazebo and water features.

All rooms offer privacy and each bed area has a television and headphones. We have accommodation for relatives to stay overnight if they wish.

If you normally receive care at home, we can arrange a short-term respite stay at the hospice to give those who normally care for you a break.

Most people return home within a couple of weeks with the community services they need. We can also arrange for equipment or adaptations to people’s homes.

If you can’t return home because you still need support, we will advise you and your family on how to find nursing or residential care.

Many people come back to our day services for continuing care and support.

We care for some people at the end of their lives making them as comfortable as possible. We also support their carers, families and children.

How to get in-patient care

Ask your GP, nurse or hospital consultant if they think you could benefit from Marie Curie Hospice in-patient services and whether they will refer you. For more information about in-patient services phone 0191 219 1000.
