St Michael’s Hospice Wheelie Big Cycle 2015

wbc2-13

Living with a life-limiting illness can affect a person in many different ways; from physical changes to their body, changes to their relationships and lifestyle, differences in their self-esteem and confidence and possible loss of independence.

The multi-disciplinary team at St Michael’s Hospice work together to help patients and their families adjust to the inevitable changes that life-limiting illnesses bring; our doctors and nurses help to relieve symptoms and control pain; physiotherapists and occupational therapists work with patients and carers to find techniques to remain living independently; other professionals are able to assist with worries about money or housing, offer spiritual guidance and support with emotional upheaval.

Our services include:

  • 16 bed In-Patient Unit
  • Day Hospice
  • Physiotherapy and occupational therapy
  • Support groups and workshops for patients and carers
  • Complementary therapies
  • Saturday Club for children affected by the illness of a loved one
  • Bereavement support
  • Family support
  • 24-hour advise line
