The hospice has fourteen bedrooms, including a family room, for patients who need 24-hour specialist care. Patients who stay with us often need help managing their physical symptoms, such as pain or nausea. Others may be having distressing emotional or spiritual difficulties.
Many patients stay for just a short while for help overcoming a specific problem and then return home or to their nursing home. The hospice also cares for patients at the very end of their life and can occasionally offer respite care too.
Our team of consultants, doctors, nurses and other health professionals offer expert treatment and care. Decisions about care are always made in consultation with patients, carers and family members.
The comfort and privacy of our patients is vital. All incare patients stay in a single, ensuite room with a television, stereo and access to the beautiful hospice gardens. A daily menu is provided, but we aim to meet specific requests for food and drink too.
Normal patient visiting hours are between 10am and 9pm. Visiting outside these hours is by special arrangement with the nurse in charge, taking into consideration each patient's particular requirements.
