Complementary Therapies are offered to our patients for well being, relaxation and management of distressing symptoms and we will discuss with the patient the best therapy for them.
There are three staff therapists and 12 volunteers offering therapies to In-Patients, Out-Patients and to Day Hospice patients. We run an Out-Patient clinic twice a week and also offer therapies to patients in their own homes and in nursing homes. We also run a carers clinic once a week for carers of patients on the In-Patient unit and see other carers by appointment. In addition to this we offer workshops in making blended products for home use, such as aromasticks for anxiety/ nausea/breathlessness and using therapies for relaxation. We also offer bereaved carers emotional support with Complementary Therapies.
We produce information leaflets on a range of topics to inform and support. This is our Complementary Therapies leaflet, which you may like to print out. Our full range of leaflets can be found on the information leaflets page.
