  • Toiletries
  • Any medication you’re currently taking
  • Your favourite books/DVDs/CDs you want to bring
  • Any favourite food and drink you fancy 

Yes! We have facilities for close family and friends to stay the night.

They can stay either by the bedside or in a family guest room, and you can also have your pet stay with you. Please talk to one of our team at the hospice if you’d like your loved ones to our staff about making arrangements for your loved ones to stay over.

Your care will be looked after by our team of experts, who will be with you every step of the way. 

You’re free to treat the hospice just as you would your own home. You can access the gardens, or get involved with any of the complementary therapies and activities going on. You can find out more about the activities and emotional support on offer on the Wellbeing page.
