We have two In-patient Units, one in Taunton and one in Yeovil, where our specialist team of doctors, nurses, therapists and volunteers aim to provide the best possible holistic care in homely and comfortable surroundings. Each unit has single rooms and four bed ward areas. In addition, we have an independent living flat within our In-patient Units, equipped for rehabilitation and enabling independence.
As well as treating each patient’s symptoms and controlling pain, we care for the emotional, psychological and spiritual needs of each person with respect and sensitivity. We also offer a wide range of complementary therapies, such as aromatherapy, massage, reflexology and diversional therapy for patients.
Once symptoms have been controlled, most patients prefer to return home. We work with social workers, occupational therapists and community teams to make sure this happens safely and successfully. We support carers and families offering training, where required, to ensure safe discharge.
Patients may remain at the hospice for end of life care if this is best for them and we have facilities for some family members to stay.
