Day Therapy Unit
Patients usually visit our Day Therapy Unit one day each week for a range of physical, emotional, social and spiritual support tailored to their needs.
The unit offers patients a space to socialise with other patients as peer support is a very important part of their care. It also provides vital respite for carers and relatives.
Local resident Julie, is a regular day patient at Michael Sobell Hospice Day Therapy Unit. Following her cancer diagnosis, she was referred to the Unit by the oncology team at Mount Vernon Hospital and regularly attended group sessions at the hospice on a Wednesday. After the Day Therapy Unit closed due to the lockdown, Julie initially received telephone support. She subsequently attended the virtual coffee mornings and art therapy sessions provided by the Remote Support and Wellbeing Service.
All clinical services at the Hospice are provided thanks to an innovative partnership between Michael Sobell Hospice and Harlington Hospice.
What our patients and their families say:
The support was so individual, I could talk to the nurses about any issue, and they would come up with suggestions and solutions. They provided absolutely amazing support and it was so good knowing I could speak to someone every week about the small things that made a difference.
