Alice House Hospice provides a Day Hospice for people living with life limiting illnesses living in the local community.
"The Hospice helped me to come to terms with my illness and the staff were so helpful to my husband and family. The staff are kind, caring and thoughtful."
This service is based in the Holistic Wellbeing Centre within the Hospice grounds and operates on a Wednesday from 9.00 am until 4.00 pm. The environment is relaxed and friendly and is surrounded by beautiful gardens that are easily accessible; all meals and refreshments are included.
At the Day Hospice you will be able to meet others in a similar position, share experiences and obtain advice and support about any worries or concerns you may have.
The service is designed to provide support to patients who may have issues with their health including:
- Management of symptoms
- Providing psychological and emotional support
- Administration of treatments, such as blood transfusions and intravenous fluids
- Providing an introduction to Hospice services
- Signposting/referring to other healthcare professionals
- Supporting individual and carers’ wellbeing
- Providing relaxation and complementary therapies
Whilst you are with us, you will be cared for by our fully trained staff and have access to our Specialist Multi-Disciplinary Team and transport to and from Day Hospice can be arranged if needed.
The Hospice is a non-smoking environment, however people who wish to smoke can do so in designated areas outside the building.
