Our wellbeing services
September 2020 - Due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, our hub and schedule of classes are not currently running, please call 01590 677198 for support and advice.
Being diagnosed with a life-limiting condition, or being frail and elderly can be difficult and lead to feelings of isolation. Oakhaven offers support to help you to come to terms with your diagnosis and provides practical advice on living with your condition. We offer a programme of activities and support groups, mainly held in the Coates Centre, that are aimed at helping you to live the best life possible, supported by our team of volunteers and staff.
The Coates Centre is open to everyone including our patients, their families, carers, friends and the general public. This wonderfully light building is a friendly and welcoming environment, where our volunteers will support you to make the most of your visit.
As well as activities within the Coates Centre our wellbeing services reach out into the community through social self-help groups such as the Widowed Friendship Club or into your home through our Hospice Neighbours volunteer support.
