COVID-19 Update

Our Day Care Team have paused daily sessions for now.   However, if you normally attend, we will keep in touch with you by telephone and find the best ways to support your needs until normal services can resume again.  In the meantime, please don't hesitate to phone us on 01324 826222 if you would like to talk to us.

A visit to Day Care enables you to meet with others in a similar situation, as well as having the chance to discuss all aspects of your illness with staff. If you have particular needs or concerns, these can be discussed with nursing staff who will call on the wider Hospice team and services to support you in the best possible way. This might be from the Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Relaxation team, Hospice physicians, Patient & Family Support Team, Chaplain or Pharmacist

I was referred to Day Care by my District Nurse and I feel it’s the best day of the week for me. The thing I value most is I can be myself.

During your day with us you can also spend time talking to fellow patients; pursue your own creative projects; join in group sessions and engage with a variety of interesting visitors from across the community. We also offer the chance to have a haircut or unwind with a relaxing massage or reflexology (complementary therapy). In addition to our social activities we provide a freshly prepared lunch and refreshments throughout the day.


With different people and surroundings to enjoy, spending the day with us can revitalise you and give valuable respite to your carers and family members. Our staff and those who volunteer with us provide a friendly welcome with plenty of laughter and emotional support.

Like all services offered by Strathcarron Hospice, Day Care is completely free of charge.
