how we help

At the heart of our work are the needs of each individual patient and family. We can offer...

A chance for patients and carers to talk through difficult issues, to be listened to, and explore what is important at this time.

complementary therapies
Gentle touch therapies such as massage, aromatherapy, reflexology, Indian head massage, reiki to soothe and relax and help ease difficult symptoms offering patient and carer ‘something for them’.  Acupuncture to help relieve problems such as nausea, pain and hot flushes.

nutritional advice
Helping patients to explore healthy options when eating is difficult, appetite is poor or energy is low.

art work
An opportunity to be creative in any way that is practical, meaningful or enjoyable.

and especially for carers...

a sitting service
A chance to leave your loved one in safe hands and good company while you take a little time out

bereavement support
Continued support for the family when a patient has died
