Visiting the hospice

The first time visiting the hospice can be daunting. We want to do everything we can to make you feel welcome and at ease.  If you are visiting an inpatient, please come to reception when you first arrive. If you are being referred for Hospice Care, please contact our care team to arrange a visit around the hospice and to meet our friendly staff.

When can family visit?

We make it as easy as possible for family, carers, and friends to visit the hospice at any time - we know spending time together is hugely important.  There are no set visiting times, and our building has full disabled access. There may be times, such as meal times, or when doctors and nurses are carrying out care, when we may ask visitors to wait. During these times, visitors may use our cafe or other public spaces while we look after you. 

Each of the rooms opens to its own patio at one side and into a communal seating area in the centre. We encourage patients and families to use this central area to relax together, or use our family social area, which is situated between the two inpatient areas. This space can be used to share a meal or a cup of tea. 

Barga Cree Café is open 8am to 7pm, seven days a week. Find out more about the cafe.

What about children and pets?

Children are always welcome. We ask they are supervised by a parent or guardian. Pets are also welcome.
