Our care

In-Patient Unit

When staying with us you'll get high quality care in a friendly, warm and calm environment.

A home from home

Your room will be private with en-suite facilities, and entertainment system including radio, TV, internet access and a phone to keep in touch with loved ones. You’ll be also able to spend time in our gardens, and enjoy meals freshly prepared for you by our catering team each day.

We have family rooms available so that your loved ones can stay over when you most need them.

Please note

Building works on the In-Patient Unit

We’re currently making improvements to the In-Patient unit, which means there’ll be building works happening in the ward from now until Christmas. We’re sorry for any disruption this causes and will do all we can to ensure patient care is disrupted as little as possible.

What's a hospice like?

People often expect the hospice to be just like a hospital ward, but it really isn’t. Yes, we provide end of life care, but that’s only part of what we do. Patients and their loved ones access hospice care for so many different reasons, from symptom management to physiotherapy, emotional support and much more. It’s important to know that not all care happens at the hospice, we mostly provide hands on care in patients’ own homes – day and night – through our Hospice at Home service.

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.
