Care & Support

Bury Hospice provides invaluable end-of-life care and support to our patients and their families.
Inpatient Unit

Inpatient Unit

Our Inpatient Unit provides a calm and caring environment for our patients and visitors. Our team of staff are truly committed to ensuring everyone is treated with dignity, respect and compassion. Last year we cared for over 170 patients in our Inpatient Unit.

Our Unit has been purpose built and offers single rooms. Each room has an en-suite shower room and a terrace with its own view of the gardens. Patients are encouraged to bring items in to personalise their room and pets are welcome to visit.

The Inpatient Unit is specialised and we take a holistic approach to a patient’s illness and also the wellbeing of their family. We offer emotional and psychological support which helps people when they need it most.

Community Outreach

Community Outreach Service

The Outreach service supports patients and families in their own home through the provision of education, personal, practical and emotional support for short periods of time. You can be referred to into our service by any health or social care professional. The outreach team is also supported by volunteer outreach buddies who are able to provide practical support and situational respite.

Our outreach team are getting involved much earlier in a diagnosis and the team spend time with the patients and their families to signpost what help and other services are available and talk through the process of their illness so they know what to expect.

We have recently extended our outreach service to seven days and will be implementing a night respite service in the near future.

Complementary Therapy

At Bury Hospice we offer complementary therapy to our patients and also their families. Johanna Cohen, a former nurse on our Inpatient Unit runs this service and is passionate about the difference complementary therapy makes. We provide natural and supportive therapies that can be used alongside conventional medicines and treatment. Available therapies include Reflexology, Reiki, Indian Head Massage and Relaxation Therapy.

Bereavement and Family Support

We offer bereavement support for adults and children, which is co-ordinated by our specialist family bereavement counsellor.

Our bereavement counsellor has developed several initiatives over the last couple of years including:

  • Weekly Walk & Talk Group.
  • Bereavement Drop-in Cafés throughout the month.
  • Sunflower Group to provide bereavement support for children aged five to 11, as well as their parents or carers.
  • Annual bereavement events.

Outpatient Clinics

We host The Christie clinic in our Living Well Centre twice a week, every Tuesday and Thursday as part of the Systemic Anti Cancer Therapy (SACT) Outreach service, bringing treatment closer to home.

We have also launched a motor neurone disease (MND) clinic in collaboration with Salford Royal Hospital (Northern Care Alliance). The clinic runs every third Tuesday between 1pm and 5pm.

Homeless Friendly

Accessing timely care and support can be particularly challenging for the homeless community. We are proud to have signed the Homeless Friendly Pledge. This is our commitment to raise the profile of the Homeless Community, to work collaboratively with existing community groups and services that already provide vital support and ensure accessibility to our services.

Our Aim

It is our aim to ensure that we are able to develop our services to continue meeting the needs of people with life-limiting illnesses across Bury and make sure excellent patient care is at the heart of everything we do.
