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.
