About the Hospice
Supporting Local Families
Our nursing care and support help patients to continue living at home with their families while receiving active treatment. If treatment has ended we help patients to stay at home for as long as possible and to die there if they choose to. When a patient recovers we continue to support them for as long as they need us to.
The Shakespeare Hospice is not just for patients - we help carers and family members too. If you think you could benefit from our support please get in touch.
'Some people think if they go to a hospice it will be like closing the door, as though it is the end, but for me it was opening the door, allowing me to carry on with my life with dignity.'
Services we offer include nursing care, personal care, counselling, complementary therapies (including massage and aromatherapy), occupational therapy, physiotherapy, chaplaincy and creative therapies (including arts and craft work).
The Day Hospice is open four days a week, Monday to Thursday, and our long-term aim is to open 7 days a week. Patients are taken to and from the Hospice by volunteer drivers or by ambulance if necessary.
A welcoming smile always awaits here at The Shakespeare Hospice. If you think you could benefit from our support please get in touch on 01789 266852 or visit our Hospice Care pages to find out more.
