Day Hospice For Patients
The Day Hospice at The Shakespeare Hospice offers palliative and supportive care for patients living with a diagnosis of life limiting illness.
Our specialist nurses can offer you and your carers and family members time to discuss your diagnosis, the treatment options available to you and your feelings about your situation. Support is available through a conversation over the phone, or you are welcome to call into the Hospice to make enquiries about the support we are able to offer.
We accept referrals from any source, including self-referral.
In the Day Hospice we offer two types of days to suit the differing needs of our patients and carers. On Tuesdays and Thursdays we offer full days for patients to access all of the services, obtain support from our Day Hospice team and enjoy lunch.
Every Wednesday at the Hospice patients have the option of outpatient style appointments, in order to provide the flexibility of combining your Hospice appointments with your daily life.
