Our aim is to help you maintain your independence and enhance your overall quality of life.

You may also enjoy meeting others who may also be experiencing hospice care for the first time.

Before long you might find yourself having some complementary therapies or undergoing physiotherapy.

All our services are provided in a relaxed and informal environment. They include:

Nursing care

During every weekly visit your nurse will monitor your condition and treatment and discuss any concerns you may have, either about your illness or other matters.

One of our specialist doctors visits the Day Hospice regularly. Your nurse will refer you to him or her as appropriate.

Therapeutic activities

These are offered either in groups or one-to-one and are designed to help you maintain interests or develop new skills and enhance your quality of life.

Our programme of activities includes painting, craft work, discussion groups, relaxation sessions, anxiety management, healthy living and exercise classes.

Spiritual care

At St Michael’s Hospice, spiritual care is at the heart of our compassionate caring community. 

We will support you in your beliefs whatever your faith (or none), and address any fears or anxieties you or your family may face.

Physiotherapy and Occupational therapy

The integrated team of specialist therapists offer assessment and therapies for patients – such as providing equipment and exercises to enable people to maintain their independence and mobility.
