Palliative care Hospices
There are three hospices which can offer you support at any stage in your illness. They offer admission for help with difficult symptoms, emotional problems, rehabilitation and terminal care. They also offer day therapy and bereavement support. The hospices can provide you with information booklets, and arrangements can be made through your doctor or nurse for a visit to show you around and explain their services.
The hospices are:
