We do have limited access to an overnight room for family members. In general, this is only offered to those families whose loved ones are in the last days of their life. We can, on occasion, set up temporary beds or recliner chairs in patient rooms, if required. Longer term accommodation cannot be provided.
A fully equipped hairdressing salon operates from the Palliative Care Unit and is available to patients, visitors and staff. The salon is open Tuesday to Friday from 10.00am to 5.00pm by appointment. The hairdresser will also visit ward units on request.
Patients are required to bring their own pyjamas, nightdresses, bed jackets, dressing gowns, slippers and toiletries. We provide and launder all bed linen and towels. If possible, arrangements should be made to launder patients’ personal clothing at home. However, if this is not possible, laundry services in the organisation can be availed of, but all clothing must be clearly marked. Locker/wardrobe facilities are available for personal day clothing, if required.
The Hospice coffee shop is open to all relatives and visitors. Run by volunteers, it is open from 10.00am to 7.30pm daily.
Our restaurant provides snacks and a full meal service. It is open seven days a week (see opening times below). Family and friends can accompany patients to the restaurant where they can relax and enjoy each other’s company. The ward manager must be informed before a patient leaves the ward. The staff will always help families to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays and wedding anniversaries.
