Adults in Derwentside have the opportunity to spend one or two days per week at the Day Hospice where, as well as companionship, support and diversion, they can benefit from the special attention of our multi-disciplinary team. The Day Hospice team has designed a service focused on preventing social exclusion, offering respite for carers and enabling patients to review their symptoms and treatments.
Our 12-week induction programme offers patients a structured approach and provides an opportunity for people to identify their main problems and concerns and to work towards jointly agreed goals in the management of their illness. The programme is holistic in its approach, maintaining a high quality of physical, psychological and spiritual well-being, ensuring patients are enabled and supported during their journey with Willow Burn.
If appropriate, individuals including carers/family can currently access aromatherapy, reiki, massage, acupuncture and relaxation sessions from the therapists employed within the Hospice.
Willow Burn Hospice currently has 107 patients that attend our Day Hospice and this equates to 2719 days attended.
