Being there for the day
Day Hospice provides the opportunity for patients to spend a day at Deer Park. On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays last year, we welcomed over 600 people to the timetabled free days.
Each day, our aim has been to provide a safe and supportive environment for patients where they can meet with other people, share experiences, and feel part of a community. Many have found comfort and relaxation knowing they are being cared for whilst they have enjoyed time in the gardens, chatting over a lunch, creative activities, reading music, being together or spending time alone.
Day Hospice offers a relaxed environment with plenty of laughter and emotional support. A visit can revitalise patients and give respite to carers and family members. With the help of our specialist nurses and volunteers, patients are supported to manage their life changes and enhance their well-being.
Day Hospice is delivered from North Devon Hospice, on the outskirts of Newport, Barnstaple.
For more information about Day Hospice, please contact us. Free transport is available to patients who need it.
