“Coming to the hospice has really brought me out of my shell. All the nurses are so friendly.”

– Don Smith, Lichfield

A warm welcome awaits you from our specialist team of doctors, nurses and support staff who offer a range of tailored therapies.

The care we provide is as individual as you are so we’ll make sure we spend some time talking with you about how you’re feeling and any issues you have.

Our ultimate aim is to help you maintain your independence and enhance your overall quality of life.

Before long you might find yourself taking creative writing, art or computer classes, having some complementary therapies or undergoing physiotherapy.

You may also enjoy meeting others who might be experiencing hospice care for the first time.

All our day services are provided in a relaxed and informal environment. They include:

During every weekly visit your nurse will monitor your condition and treatment and discuss any concerns you may have, either about your illness or other matters.

One of our specialist doctors visits the Day Hospice regularly. Your nurse will refer you to him or her as appropriate.

These are offered either in groups or one to one and are designed to help you maintain interests or develop new skills and enhance your quality of life.

Our programme of activities includes painting, craft work, discussion groups, creative writing, relaxation sessions, anxiety management, healthy living and exercise classes.

At St Giles Hospice, spiritual care is at the heart of our compassionate caring community.We offer person-centred care that accepts and meets the needs and beliefs of each individual with full acceptance and complete affirmation.

We will not try to convince anyone of any particular faith or belief but will support them in their own beliefs and their life questions. Most of all, our aim is to address any spiritual fears or anxieties our patients and their families may face. Through showing unconditional love of all, and positively affirming our inherent human worth and value, we seek to offer real hope, peace and love in the face of every aspect of the life journey.
