Visiting a loved one on the Inpatient Unit
The Hospice actively welcomes family and friends and encourages participation in caring for their loved ones, if they so wish, whilst they are in the Hospice.
There are no restrictions on visiting times or how many can visit at a time, however it is noted that too many visitors can be very tiring for some patients and at these times we ask visitors for their co-operation and understanding in this matter.
There are also no restrictions with regards to children visiting, in fact we actually openly encourage this but we do ask that all children under the age of 16 are supervised at all times. There are toys, books, games and a computer available for children.
Pets are also welcome to visit; in fact we find this very therapeutic for our patients. Please feel free to discuss this with the nursing team.
If you need to speak to a staff member about a patient in our care, please ring 01706 649920 and ask for the Senior Nurse on duty.
