Inpatient Unit

Inpatient Unit

There are 10 single rooms available in the Inpatient Unit with en suite facilities, set within a calm, relaxed and peaceful environment. We provide 24 hour intensive nursing and medical care to patients who are admitted for the following reasons:

  • Rehabilitation
  • Control of symptoms such as pain, breathlessness, nausea or vomiting
  • Emergency respite care
  • End of life care

The usual length of stay for our patients is between 10-12 days.

You will receive a warm and friendly welcome from staff and volunteers on the Inpatient Unit who will ensure you receive the best possible care during your stay with us and that you and your family are treated with courtesy, dignity and respect at all times.

We have a separate room with kitchen facilities where you can relax with friends and family and additional accommodation where a family member can stay, if necessary. Children are also welcome to visit and a much loved pet if you wish. Our coffee shop is open from 10am – 7pm where family members can buy a selection of snacks, or lunch/supper so you can enjoy a meal together as you would at home.

As an inpatient at the Hospice you will be able to visit Magnolia Place or access our Family Support Services.

“They are absolutely wonderful people at the Hospice. The staff are lively and pleasant and I think they must have been picked for their sense of humour.”
