Victoria Palliative Care Day Services
VICTORIA DAY SERVICES
Located within the Hospice building is a specialist palliative care day unit for those facing life limiting illness. The unit is open Monday – Friday from 10 am – 3 pm. The care is given by qualified nurses who assess individuals on an ongoing basis. The nurses are involved within the multi-disciplinary team who consist of Doctors, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Dietician. We also have a Music Therapist and a Complementary Therapist who provides therapies on a daily basis.
Attending day services allows individuals to have their symptoms managed by the appropriate health care professional. Symptoms can be emotional, psychosocial, psychological and for some it gives additional support to their families while attending day hospice.
The day service is also supported by a dedicated team of volunteers who bring a variety of experience and skills to the service. Individuals can take part in various activities including art work, baking, glass making tuition and music therapy.
Referrals can be made by hospital Consultants, GPs, Community Specialist Palliative Care Nurses, District Nurses and any other health professionals involved with the patient or his/her family.
