Carer Support Days
Our respite days for carers who are supporting Oakhaven patients, have been running since 2005. We hold these days on the second Tuesday of every month within our Day Hospice. You can attend for either a full or half day. Our aim is to provide time just for you to enjoy a relaxed and calming atmosphere.
“Oakhaven Hospice has a lovely atmosphere; I really enjoy attending the carers' days. I give a big sigh as I enter and breathe in the calm and compassion the Hospice exudes and get ready to enjoy my day, knowing when I leave I’ll be able to take a deep breath in and pick up my big bag of caring duties on the way out….carers' days are a lifeline.”
