The Hospice Day Care Centre is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 10am – 3pm. Up to 15 patients can attend per day.

We offer an active day with professional supervision giving a break from routine for the patients and respite for their full-time carers.

In a calm, quiet atmosphere patents can relax, share their problems, seek reassurance or simply enjoy one another’s company.

There is also access to various therapies:

  • including complementary therapies such as aromatherapy, massage
  • physiotherapy to improve mobility
  • occupational therapy to maintain and promote independence

Review by our Doctors will be arranged, as necessary.

Where necessary, our volunteer drivers can pick you up from home and bring you in, then take you home later, perhaps allowing your spouse or carer to get on with other activities, whilst you are in a friendly, entertaining and caring environment.
