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.
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.
