Oak Centre Open Days

Event date: 15 January 2018

Everyone is welcome to drop in on one of our Open Days from January 15th to 17th to find out more about our new day service for people in Wigan Borough who have a life-limiting illness.

The Oak Centre at Wigan and Leigh Hospice is a place where people will be supported to achieve their personal goals and get the most out of life.

Staff including a physiotherapist, occupational therapist, rehabilitation assistants and a creative therapies coordinator will work with clients to identify their physical, emotional and social needs and empower them to tackle the challenges which lie ahead.

The Oak Centre team and volunteers will be at hand to answer questions on our Open Days and to help people to refer themselves to the service. Complementary therapists will be offering free taster sessions of Reiki and massage and creative sessions will be taking place throughout the day. Anyone interested in finding out more including members of the public, their families and health or social care professionals are welcome to drop in between January 15th to 17th between 10am and 3pm every day.

Jacqui White, Oak Centre Manager, says: "When someone is diagnosed with a life-limiting illness they may feel afraid or no longer in control of their lives. At the Oak Centre we want to help people face what the future holds and feel in control of their lives.
"Wellbeing at the Oak Centre is more than about helping people with their medical needs, it is about helping them find skills for better living, adjust to their diagnosis, discover new interests and meet new people."

To refer yourself to the service or find out more about the Open Days contact the Oak Centre on 01942 525566 or email: oakcentre@wlh.org.uk
