Every Wednesday, our Day Hospice is filled with conversation and chatter.

This is thanks to our Welcome Group, a volunteer-led service that provides social and peer support for patients who have a life-limiting or terminal illness. It also provides one day a week of respite for carers who are looking after a relative.

If you’re going in there, you’re in for the surprise of your life, you won’t want to come home. – Ray

From 10.00am to 3.00pm, you can meet with peers and share experiences, while taking part in arts and crafts activities, making memory boxes and experience relaxation and mindfulness activities.

Living with a life-limiting illness, you can often feel quite alone in the world but our Welcome Group reminds you that you’re not. There are others experiencing the same situation as yourself and together, you can find a way to smile through it all.
