What to expect if you are to be admitted

If a relative is bringing you to the Hospice, there will be no problem parking as there is plenty of free parking spaces on site for relatives and visitors.

You will be welcomed to the unit by our friendly volunteers at the main reception desk. They will take you  to the In-patient Unit to meet the nurse who will take you through the admission process.

Our Facilities

All our bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom and access to a small patio and garden area where in fine weather you can sit and enjoy nature. You can bring small personal items such as photographs and pictures to make the room more comfortable and familiar during your stay with us.

Please bring your own personal items such as pyjamas/night attire/dressing gown, slippers, wash bag with soap/shower gel, shampoo, toothpaste, razor, hairbrush , moisture cream and any other personal care items that you usually use. We advise that you also bring any aids which you use such as walking sticks/frames/wheelchair.

Please do not bring valuable items or large amounts of cash with you as we do not have facilities to store them and cannot accept responsibility for their loss or damage.

Our team of nurses and doctors will do all they can to make you comfortable.

Overnight Accommodation

We have one family room which can be used for overnight accommodation to facilitate a nights sleep whilst remaining nearby. The room is available from 18.00 – 08.30 each day. Please speak to one of the nursing team.
