St Richard’s Hospice is widening access to patients and their loved ones living with a serious progressive illness with the launch of a new Living Well Centre at its base in Wildwood Drive, Worcester.
Individuals can now be referred to the Living Well Centre one day a week on a 4 to 12-week therapeutic program (previously Day Hospice); to attend an Out-patient Clinic or to take part in one of many Living Well courses, social groups and information sessions.
The changes reflect the move to a rehabilitative model of care based on a stepped approach which will see a natural progression as physical and emotional needs increase.
The Living Well Centre is in a new extension built as Stage 1 of the hospice’s Build 2020 appeal and includes the redeveloped former day hospice rooms. It is light, modern, and spacious, enabling a greater number of therapeutic sessions and activities. We are able to offer patients care and support from diagnosis, through treatment to their last days in flexible ways to suit their needs and lifestyles.
