Bury Hospice provides specialist palliative care to adults with any life limiting illness.

Care is provided though our inpatient facility, here we support patients and families through individual assessment and the delivery of specialist nursing and medical care.   Our dedicated team provide support in the management of any complex symptoms and end of life care for those who wish to die in the Hospice.

Our supportive care services includes Day Services, where we support patients and their carers every Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:00 until 3:00pm. We provide a relaxing and calm environment where the aims of the service is to enhance wellbeing, focus on living well and promoting dignity, independence and choice.   We can help manage your condition through support, advice, information and education through the support of the group, or on a one to one basis. Participating in our creative therapies can help build self-esteem and confidence with a socially stimulating group.

Also part of our supportive care services is our Medical Outpatients clinic. The clinic is available to those who require specialist medical support in the management of any complex symptoms. Clinics run every weekday morning except Mondays.

Our Bury Hospice Outreach team who have extensive knowledge and skills in palliative care, provide support to patients and their families in their own home through the provision of education, personal, practical and emotional support for short periods of time.  During our assessments we may also signpost patients and their families to other services.  Where appropriate we may also refer to other care providers for ongoing support. 

Bereavement/family support is offered to any family member or friend of someone who has died in the care of any of the Hospice services.  Bereavement support is offered on a one-to-one basis either at the hospice in a quiet, calm and private environment or, in some circumstances in your own home.  Telephone support is also available.   Bury Hospice holds regular remembrance services dedicated to patients who have died recently.  We also hold an annual Light up a Life service in December, giving families and friends the opportunity to celebrate someone special during the festive season.
