Our care

Support services

Our Patient and Family Support team are here to help you manage the challenges that come with a life-limiting illness.

We can support you emotionally, practically and spiritually throughout your illness. We have a range of options available to you on your journey through dealing with a life-limiting illness, including:

Emotional support

Individual and group emotional support available. Being able to talk about the emotional impact of your condition either individually or within a patient group.

Practical advice

We offer lots of practical advice including advice on welfare and benefits. For instance, helping you to understand what financial support might be available to you. And what care support, outside of the hospice, you might be able to access.

Spiritual support

Whatever your beliefs, we want to make sure you’re supported spiritually. This also includes people without a faith who want to discuss parts of their illness.

Working with the arts

We’re lucky to be one of only a few hospices in the UK with a well equipped, dedicated art studio which is facilitated by our artist-in-residence where you can develop a creative voice through different activities.. You can create something for yourself or for someone else, the choice is yours and our artist can support you along the way.

What our patients say:

My favourite space is the art room. I would spend all my time in there, it’s such a creative place and each session I’d come away having learnt something new from the Artist-in-Residence.
