Wigan & Leigh Hospice provides specialist end-of-life care, and a wide range of support services for those with progressive life-limiting illnesses, for hundreds of people each and every year.
Many of our patients access our care through the hospice’s medical outpatient clinics, which run twice each week.
People often think that our services are only delivered at the hospice itself, but our own specialist nurses provide much of our care in the community.
Our Day Hospice enables people to access our services one day a week, for a defined period – providing care, support and social interaction.
Our goal is to care for the ‘whole needs of the whole person’ – providing not only care for the body, but also for the mind and spirit.
Perhaps as important as our care for our patients when they are living is our care for their loved ones when they have gone.
The hospice offers a wide range of therapy sessions to significantly improve patients’ wellbeing.
It isn’t just our patients who need and benefit from our care and support. We know that family and friends can find caring for a loved one to be a challenge.
