Les Bourgs day hospice provides a fun and enjoyable day for people who have a life limiting condition and who are socially isolated.
It aims to provide social contact, mental stimulation and holistic care to patients. We hope to enhance and promote peoples’ quality of life in our warm, friendly and caring environment.
Day hospice also provides relief, rest and support for carers and family members.
The Day Hospice offers various activities such as arts and crafts, concerts, film afternoons, exercise classes, highly competitive quizzes, music therapy, gardening and the odd touch of gambling (bingo).
The day hospice has a lively lunch club atmosphere, complete with pre-lunch sherry from the drinks trolley.
Complementary therapy is available by way of reflexology, Reiki, massage and aromatherapy in a dedicated peaceful therapy room.
Once a week we also hold a service for patients with a service from a different religious denomination each week.
Refreshments are provided throughout the day, along with a three course lunch and homemade cake for afternoon tea.
The day is organised by qualified nursing staff, supported by wonderful volunteers who aim to make the day as enjoyable as possible.
