Day Therapy Unit - Trinity Hospice

Day Therapy Unit

Our Day Therapy Unit at Trinity gives you the chance to enjoy a wide variety of therapies and activities along with a change of environment and scenery. Here you will find mutual support and meet others like you in a comfortable, safe and relaxing environment.

Over a period of normally 16 weeks, we will work together with you and your family so when you are with us you can express your fears and worries.

Our day therapy promotes physical, psychological and spiritual well being, and we aim to help you gain confidence and overcome the social isolation you may feel. Our medical team, working alongside your GP, will support you with effective symptom control that allows you to live as independently as possible.

Our team of health care professionals:

  • Nurses
  • Doctors
  • Physiotherapists
  • Occupational therapist
  • Lymphoedema nurses
  • Chaplains
  • Complementary therapist and volunteers
  • Craft co-ordinators

 

 

Our team would be incomplete without our wonderful volunteers who play a vital role in our work. They are drivers, hairdressers, a manicurist and many others who support us in many other roles.

If you are a carer, you can be assured that your relative is safe and well cared for, allowing you to have a day free to enjoy some time to yourself. We have a carers’ support group which meets every month, but we are always available to see you, if you need us.

And we are good Neighbours too!

Our Volunteering team runs a Hospice Neighbours scheme, where we match a patient to a volunteer who can visit to provide companionship and practical support in the home. Hospice Neighbours was set up in response to a need in the community, recognising that alongside clinical and spiritual support, people with life-limiting illness may also need practical help with everyday tasks. Hospice Neighbours can help with picking up prescriptions or shopping, taking the dog for a walk, tidying the garden or helping you get to an appointment.

We know that the world doesn’t stop when people are ill – and  having some help with those small but important tasks can be a huge weight off your mind.
