Please note that our Day Therapy and Bereavement Services have been temporarily closed in light of the recent Coronavirus outbreak.
We are sure you will understand the welfare of our patients, visitors, staff and volunteers is of paramount importance; we have introduced this measure to protect those we care for with weakened immune systems due to the nature of their life-limiting illness.

The Day Therapy or Bereavement team will contact any service user directly that has existing appointments for counselling, 1:1 support or Complementary Therapy they will then endeavour to look at alternative means of supporting you during this time.  Thank you for your understanding.
If you would like to discuss this further, please call on 01924 331400 and ask to speak to the Day Therapy or Bereavement team.


Supportive therapies for adults and their carers, family members and significant others whose lives are touched by cancer or a life threatening illness

The hospice aims to provide support that is free and confidential for those whose lives are touched by cancer or a life threatening illness, such as end stage respiratory + cardiac failure, Motor Neurone Disease (MND) etc.


This support for you and your family is provided in a purpose built Day Therapy Unit and is staffed by a specialist multi-professional team in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

There is also an opportunity to talk with and gain support from others who are living with the effects of cancer or a life threatening illness.

Your first visit will include an assessment of your needs and an individual plan of therapies will be offered. Some of these therapies may be by specified appointment and time limited.
