Here to help
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect so many aspects of our lives, we have had to temporarily close our Day Hospice to ensure the safety of our patients. We are finding other ways to continue to provide face to face expert advice and support to adults in East Dorset and Purbeck living with a life-limiting illness. We will do this by planned group and one-to-one video sessions with our patients.
Patients will be assessed by one of our registered nurses and invited to join a virtual programme of care one day a week. Spaces on the programme will be limited, but you may expect to meet at least six other patients on your day and each session will be hosted by our Day Hospice staff. The aim is to promote a sense of wellbeing and a positive approach to living with a life-limiting illness, as well as providing some much-needed social interaction for those people who are shielding at home.
