Day Therapy at the Hospice – supporting patients to help them deal with the physical, emotional and social impact of living with a life-limiting illness. Within the Day Therapy unit we provide access to a range of services aimed at enabling each individual to maximise their wellbeing and quality of life.
Our Day Therapy service provides specialist palliative care for adults in Rossendale with a life limiting illness or a long term condition.
We aim to provide a happy and sociable environment in which patients can relax in comfort with the support of the nursing staff and other patients going through similar experiences.
Spending time with us provides a day away from the home environment and a chance to meet new friends. Lunch is provided, with a varied menu to choose from.
You can spend the day doing as much or as little as you like. If you feel like a pamper session, we have a Jacuzzi bath, complementary therapies such as reflexology, aromatherapy massage or reiki. You can discuss with your therapist which treatment would suit you best. A hairdresser and manicurist visit the Hospice regularly.
Our nursing staff can provide advice on symptom control, social support as well as arts and crafts sessions, quizzes, and trips out to places of interest, or simply to have fun!
We recognise that caring for someone with a life limiting illness is stressful for both the patient and those caring for them so a day at the Hospice provides a much needed rest or simply time to catch up with everyday jobs.
In addition to the above day therapy provides;
Peer group support
Access to specialist consultant
Access to specialist palliative physiotherapy service
Access to social worker
Signposting/referall to other services as appropriate
Clarke & Clarke donated £1000 from their annual staff auction.
Home furnishings distributor, Clarke & Clarke has raised £1,000 for the Hospice with their annual staff auction.
The auction, which took place in December, sold pieces of furniture which had been used at trade shows throughout the year. The Haslingden based company, which has over 80 employees, decided to donate the money raised to a local charity and Rossendale Hospice was their charity of choice.
We are very grateful to the staff at Clarke & Clarke for choosing to support the Hospice.
The Friends group are a group of volunteers who support the Hospice by organising events to fundraise for the Hospice. Please support them by attending the Fashion Show which is being held at St Mary's Chambers on the 19th of November. All welcome.
