Dove Cottage - Palliative Day Care

Dove Cottage has two hospices – one in Stathern, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, and one in Ridlington, Rutland.

We offer high quality palliative/end of life day care to people in NE Leicestershire, Rutland and SE Nottinghamshire who are living with a life-limiting illness, such as cancer, motor neurone disease or COPD.

As a charity, we offer our care services free of charge. The hospice provides nursing care and advice, wellbeing activities such as complementary therapies, chaplaincy team support, games, crafts, refreshments and a home-cooked lunch. Our guests come to the hospice to be cared for in a home from home atmosphere, usually for one day a week. We also have a range of support services such as Dementia Support Groups, Family Support Group (carers’ lunches) and bereavement support.

Dove Cottage Day Hospice provides a range of services for guests over the age of 18 with an active, advanced, progressive, incurable disease, where the treatment is palliative.

Referrals can be made by families or health care professionals.  Please check our website for details of how to make a referral and the eligibility criteria.
