Day Services at The Hawthorne Centre
Many people who utilise Hawthorne Centre are still relatively well but are living with a life limiting condition. Our aim is to provide you with an opportunity to access our services as easily as possible and provide you with the flexible support you require. These services focus on enabling you to optimise your quality of life, the team have the expertise to help you manage some of the consequences of your disease and its treatment. When you meet a member of the Hawthorne team for the first time, they will ask you about your experience of illness, the impact it has on your life and those around you, and the things that you already do which help to manage it. They will then discuss with you opportunities available at the hospice and in the local community and how these could support you.
Where you would like to we also support ‘the big conversation’ and can discuss your future wishes. Many people can feel out of control during illness and empowering you to discuss your future preferences and wishes can help restore a feeling of calm and control. This is a subject which can be hard to discuss within social circles, we provide a comfortable environment and expert team to support these conversations.
