Many people living with a life limiting illness find that they experience feelings of loneliness and isolation.. People who are caring for those with a long term illness can also feel cut off from life, as their caring responsibilities increase leaving little time for self-care or socialising.

The care given by all the teams at Dove House includes finding ways to alleviate these feelings of isolation, as we try and make sure our patients and their families live the best life possible. In our Amy Johnson Community Hub patients can access a range of therapies, whilst taking part in social activities with others, and our physiotherapy and occupational therapy sessions can help people increase their mobility gaining more confidence to leave the house. If your condition is stopping you from getting out to do things you love, get in touch with us to see if we can help.

Dove House has always been at the heart of the local community, and our Hospice Neighbours team are there to help people stay connected, to offer practical help, and to offer friendship and a smiling face! If you have been recently bereaved and need help to take those difficult first steps getting out and about, why not give us a call?

On Fridays we open the doors of our Amy Johnson Community Hub to welcome anyone from the local community to join our social activity group, to meet new friends, enjoy a cup of tea, and join in all the activities. Friday Friends is open to everyone, so if you fancy trying it and want to know more, all the ways to contact us are here.
