What is day care?
Day care is available Monday through to Friday from 10am till 3.30 - approx! An individual programme of care is developed with the team (comprising of clinical nurse specialist, and occupational therapist).
Help with a wide range of issues is available - for example symptoms and difficulties cause by illness or disability, pain management, fatigue, reduction in anxiety, tension, fear and sleeplessness to name a few. Complementary therapists also offer aromatherapy massage, acupuncture and reflexology as part of the programme of day care.
We also offer respite day care for patients - their carers, friends and families. Our occupational therapist has developed a successful walking group activity exploring the local coast and countryside.
How do I arrange day care?
We accept referrals from general practitioners and community nurses, hospital doctors, nurses and therapists, carers, relatives and patients. You can refer by phone, fax, mail or email. When we receive a referral we will phone the patient to arrange a meeting either at Shalom House or their home.
We can help with travel arrangements if necessary.
