Farleigh Day Hospices are happy places, full of laughter and provide a supportive service to meet day patients' needs.
'Coming to the Day Hospice makes me a lot brighter and bubblier; it gives me something to look forward to' - Debbie, day hospice patient.
Farleigh Hospice has two day hospices, one in Chelmsford and one in Maldon. Patients can attend on a regular day each week or on a more flexible basis. The day hospices provide patients with an opportunity for social interaction and relatives and carers with respite.
People who visit the day hospice feel supported by spending time with others who may be in a similar situation. This can help them make informed choices about their care and how to live with the changes their illness may bring.
'I just love going there, I look forward to going each week, it is the highlight of my week. I have met so many wonderful people, patients and staff that I would never have met if I hadn't had this problem.' - Trevor, a Farleigh Day Hospice patient.
There is always a friendly ear where patients can voice fears or worries without burdening their loved ones. Delicious home cooked food is available for all patients.
