Caring for you as an In-patient

When patients and their families first come to Prospect Hospice for in-patient care, they often express surprise at the relaxed ambience and the spacious and light bedrooms, many with en-suite facilities, overlooking beautiful, tranquil gardens, they find here.

If you are someone anticipating a stay on our in-patient Unit in Wroughton, you can expect our care and support for you to be shaped by your needs and wishes, leaving you feeling confident and in control. Your family and friends are welcome at any time, and you will be able to spend your days in whatever way you choose. It’s your care, so there’s no routine, and you can decide what you want to do, and when you want to do it.

While you will be able to find the privacy you might wish for in your bedroom, there are also many other spaces available to you, including the Heart of the Hospice cafe, the relaxed garden room, and our dedicated quiet space for reflective or spiritual contemplation. And our extensive gardens, home to a surprising variety of wildlife, provide a summer house and seating for your and your visitors’ enjoyment.

People come to Prospect Hospice for in-patient care for many reasons, including the management of difficult symptoms, for respite care so that carers can have a much-needed break. People also come as their illness advances, often choosing to be with us in their final days.

If you are a patient and you would like to find out more about our in-patient care, speak to your Prospect Nurse Specialist.
