What we do
Our Day Hospice service is run by dedicated staff including the Medical Director, a Registered Nurse and a Senior Complementary Therapist.
A pre-admission assessment is carried out before patients are offered a ten week placement.
Day Hospice patients are able to see:
- The Hospice's Senior Speciality Director for symptom management, whilst still remaining under the care of their GP with whom we liaise
- A Registered Nurse who can advise on care and support and liaise with other nursing professionals and GPs.
- A Senior Complementary Therapist, who can help patients to develop their own coping strategies through group therapies such as relaxation,
meditation, tai chi, movement and exercise, breathlessness and fatigue management programmes.
We have volunteers who help us to provide the social aspects. There are opportunities to get together for a chat and some fun. Carers are welcome
to join in or have a few hours to themselves. Transport can be provided if needed.
