Our Services

Blythe House adds quality to life by providing the highest levels of care for people in the High Peak who are affected by cancer and certain other life-limiting illnesses, and supporting those who are bereaved.

Hospice at Home

Watch Caroline’s Story

Since 2016 we have been providing care for patients with life-limiting illness, who are experiencing difficulties, and who live in the High Peak and wish to be supported in the comfort of their own home.

Living Well Service

Our Living Well Service supports adults with cancer or certain other life-limiting illnesses. We help, inspire and guide our patients to live as well as they can. Some hospices are concerned mainly with those who are at the end stages of their lives. Unlike them, we support people at every stage of illness from diagnosis onwards. The services we provide also extend to carers and other family members.

Counselling & Bereavement Service

Our Bereavement Service is here for anyone who is finding it difficult to cope after a loved one has died. Support is available for children and young people as well as adults.

Out-patient Clinics

We provide a base for weekly Out-Patient Clinics making it easier for local people to get the specialist treatment and advice they need for lymphoedema, heart failure and palliative medicine.

Information & Support Service

The Information and Support Centre at Blythe House provides a confidential drop-in service for anyone affected by cancer or other life limiting illness. This includes people who; require information for themselves about illness or related issue, are a carer, relative or friend of someone with cancer or other life-limiting illness, are a health or social care professional.

Community Volunteer programme

Our dedicated volunteers head out in the local community to offer support and friendship to patients in the comfort of their own homes.

Support groups

We run a number of support groups and events at Blythe House which are open to anyone. These include:

  • Carers Evening Support Group
