Covid-19 Update – our Day Care Service is currently suspended
The Hospice Day Care is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am – 3pm. Up to 15 patients can attend each day. We offer an active day with professional supervision. This can include art and crafts, quizzes and games, and visits from Therapy Dogs, theatre and singing groups. Lunch and refreshments are included and served by our team of volunteers.
This also gives a break for your carer. allowing your spouse, partner or carer to get on with other activities, whilst you are in a friendly, entertaining and supervised environment.
Patients can participate in the activities programme or use the time to relax, share their problems, seek reassurance or simply enjoy one another’s company.
There is access to various therapies including:
- complementary therapies
- physiotherapy to improve mobility
- occupational therapy to maintain and promote independence
There is also a salon where patients can have their hair washed, cut and styled, massage and a nail bar if they would like to have their nails polished.
Reviews by our Doctors are also arranged, as necessary.
If you do not have your own transport, one of our volunteer drivers can collect you and then take you home at the end of the session. This is a free service supported by our Charitable Trust.
