We deliver end of life and palliative care. Palliative care means treating the ‘whole needs’ of an individual including their physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs.
Our care extends to patients with any life-limiting illness including - but not limited to - cancer, respiratory conditions and neurological conditions.Find out more
This team has specialist knowledge and skills in palliative care and supports patients with advanced illness, as well as those people important to them.
Our Hospice in your Home service has been developed to provide care for people in their own homes. Our aim is to offer support additional to that being provided by other health and social care providers.
Our inpatient unit has 14 individual beds. Patients are admitted following a referral from a GP, hospital or specialist community nurse.
Held in the Hospice’s Woodview Centre, the clinics provide assessments or review of patients with complex or rapidly changing symptoms who need specialist medical assessment.
Our counsellors can offer a variety of therapeutic interventions to identify and strengthen ways of coping, and to work through the feelings being experienced.
The Wigan Borough Palliative and End of Life Care Learning Hub is based at the hospice. Our Practice Development Team (previously Hospice in your Care Home) leads on many of the education and training sessions alongside other experienced practitioners.
We understand that when someone is ill this impacts on their family and others close to them. We offer complementary therapy, counselling and bereavement support to those who need them.How we can help you
