Open Day to relaunch Day Therapy services in Gainsborough

Local Hospice set to relaunch their services in Gainsborough

St Barnabas is due to hold Open Day to relaunch Day Therapy services in Gainsborough

Join St Barnabas on Thursday 9th August at their Gainsborough Day Therapy Centre as they relaunch their services in this area with an Open Day.

Running from 10am – 3pm, the Open Day will take place at the St Barnabas Day Therapy Centre, Front Street, Morton, DN21 3AD.

Members of the public can attend to find out more about the services which the Hospice offers free of charge to people of Lincolnshire. There will be the opportunity to ask any pressing questions at the Clinical question and answer session, complementary therapy taster sessions and refreshments.

At the Gainsborough Day Therapy Centre, St Barnabas offers free services for people over the age of eighteen who are living with a life-limiting or terminal illness, and their families and carers. This includes physiotherapy, fatigue management, nurse support, welfare advice, counselling and more.

Clare Guthrie, Staff Nurse at St Barnabas Hospice, said:

“Our Day Therapy Centre in Gainsborough has supported so many families in the local area and it is a pleasure to be able to make a difference in the community.

“I hope the relaunch of our services in Gainsborough will help raise awareness of the work we do and educate those who have unanswered questions. I’d encourage anyone wanting to know more to come along on 9th August and see first-hand how we can help.”

Pat, a Hospice Chaplain and volunteer at the Gainsborough Day Therapy Centre, added:

“The Day Therapy Centre is easy to find. There’s plenty of parking, or transport can be arranged by our volunteer drivers once your treatment plan is in place.

“We ask for nothing except that you take those first steps through the door and see what we can offer. There is even a gentle little dog called Jess, who is the Hospice’s first Canine Concern dog and will give comfort to anyone who seeks it

“As a volunteer of over fifteen years, I can honestly say that being a volunteer is about giving others help, patience, time, a listening ear and laughter. We are privileged to share the good times and support patients, families and carers through the challenging times.”
