We want to help you maintain your independence, improve your quality of life and manage your symptoms.

We provide advice, education, activities, emotional, psychological, and peer support.  

Our team can develop care plans with you based on your needs and wishes. 

As well as the face-to-face sessions, we can also support you over the phone or virtually through Microsoft Teams. We have computer tablets that we can loan to you if needed to access our virtual support.

How we can help

Telephone support 

We can offer telephone support for a range of issues for those living with a life-limiting illness or with a palliative diagnosis. 

  

Virtual support 

We have a tablet loan scheme for those with limited access to technology or the internet. Please speak to a member of the Day Services Team if you would like to discuss this further. 

  

Outpatient appointments 

Every Wednesday and Friday we have appointments available with our doctors and nurses to discuss symptom management issues and advanced care planning. These appointments are held face-to-face at our Old Brampton site and offer the opportunity to meet other professionals such as therapists and social workers. 

  

Horticultural therapy  

Horticultural Therapy sessions are held on the last Friday of the month in our gardens at Old Brampton and run between March and September. Sessions include tending the gardens as well as activities such as soap making and pot painting. 

  

Face-to-face sessions at Ashgate 

We are offering a range of face-to-face group sessions including chair-based exercises, craft activity sessions and drop-in sessions. We can also introduce you to the complementary therapy team. These sessions offer peer support and access to Day Services staff in a friendly and welcoming environment.  

"It’s nice to have friendly people to speak with and people who are on the same level as me with regards to their ailments."

David Lawton, Day Services patient

"We were nervous about visiting the hospice at first but the welcome we received was overwhelming and from then on, our experiences were always second-to-none."
