Community Hubs & Drop-Ins

Hubs in the heart of our community

Our Community Hubs and Healthy Memory Café provide a welcoming, friendly space for people to come along for a cup of tea and a chat, talk to and be listened to by one of our team members.

At the Hospice, we feel passionate about reaching more people earlier in their journey to receive our support and care, giving them confidence to live well and enjoy life to the fullest. Our Community Hubs and drop-ins help us to achieve this aim.

Community Wellbeing Hubs

We have three Hubs, which are run by our amazing Compassionate Neighbours . You are welcome to join us for a chat, meet new people and get some support and advice.

These weekly drop-in sessions are an opportunity to:

  • Join us for a cup of tea and a chat
  • Talk and be listened to by one of our team members
  • Gain information about our therapies and support services
  • Join us in a seated exercise group
  • Take part in creative and fun activities that promote health and wellbeing
  • Feel more in control and live life to its greatest potential.

“I got involved with Garden House Hospice after my wife died in July 2018. It took a long time for me to approach anyone. I wasn’t in any fit state to talk to anyone but I did eventually get in touch with the Hospice about a year after she died.

“Compassionate Neighbours have done a lot for my wellbeing. I was suicidal and I was ready to take my life. That’s when I thought I’ve got to do something now, and that’s when I contacted Garden House Hospice.

“It’s lovely to come back to the hub and to see friends again, instead of talking on the telephone throughout Covid-19. We’ve been looking forward to it for such a long time.

“I was a wreck beforehand, but now I get out in the garden and chat with neighbours. It was the Compassionate Neighbours that put me together. I’ve got nothing but praise for them.”

“Compassionate Neighbours have been a life-saver. They literally saved my life.”
