The hospice is not just a building, it is a philosophy with emphasis on care, compassion and respect for each person. We aim to provide quality care centred on the needs of our patients, their families and their carers.

Our newly expanded and refurbished facilities offer a wide range of classes to include fatigue, anxiety and breathlessness management, art therapy, complimentary therapy, social activities, patient and carer education. People with any life limiting illness are welcome, including people living with dementia. We have an Admiral Nurse who is a specialist in dementia care and provides support not only for people living with dementia but their carers as well.
