Lewis-Manning Hospice Care has launched a brand-new Mobile Hospice Care services to support patients and their families in the local community. The new mobile service is part of the hospice’s plan to bring its services closer to people’s homes. Initially the clinic will be open on Wednesdays in Wimborne at the Hamworthy Club, with plenty of free parking for patients, meaning people do not have to deal with the stress and costs of travelling miles to the hospice. The services available will be our Better Breathing Clinic, Creative Arts & Wellbeing, Bereavement and Family Support and we are excited to announce that we will soon be offering Complementary Therapy.
CEO Clare Gallie said, “We are delighted to now offer this mobile service in Wimborne, which is allowing us to provide our extraordinary hospice care, closer to home. It is critically important we can provide support when people need it – especially right now whilst people are struggling with the added complications that have been imposed by the pandemic.
“This new mobile space is light, warm and has a friendly atmosphere, with the same clinical standards you’d find in our hospice. Patients will see the same reassuring faces each time, with the benefit of us bringing our services closer to you.”
Anyone wishing to be referred from Wimborne and the surrounding areas simply needs to be registered with a GP surgery within East Dorset and can be referred by the healthcare professional linked with their care or with some services a person can refer themselves.
