Evelyn Day Therapy Centre


Supporting patients to live fully through a range of care programmes and groups

 
 

Our Day Therapy Service currently operates three days a week here at Arthur Rank Hospice from the Evelyn Day Therapy Centre and also provides an outreach service in Ely.  Patients attend for an agreed period of time and have an individual program tailored to suit their needs.

Our specialist team includes nurses, healthcare assistants, complementary therapists, creative activity team, a chaplainoccupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychological therapists, the medical team and volunteers.

People who have been diagnosed with life-limiting illness can be referred to Day Therapy by their General Practitioner or District Nurse.  Any health or social care professional should be able to talk to you about being referred.


Can You Help?

Life celebration work and creative activities  

As well as accessing our specialist team who can help with symptom management and control, spiritual support and providing relaxing therapies, our Life Celebration and Creative Activities Coordinator, Faith guides creative therapy sessions allowing patients to discover a new talent or enjoy a long-forgotten hobby. 

We also encourage patients to talk about their lives and explore ways in which they might like to leave something which celebrates life-moments, for family or loved ones.  

During the coronavirus pandemic, we are inviting you to either use or help provide us with “memory box connection cards”: 51 different postcard sized cards, each with a different question to help spark memories and conversations between patients and their family or friends.
  
To find out more about helping create the cards you can watch the video below and/or download the information HERE or email faith.macrow@arhc.org.uk 

You can download the 51 questions HERE
 
Please take 5 minutes whilst Faith explains how you can help to support someone to collate their memories during social distancing, and help our patients leave a priceless gift for loved ones during social distancing.
