Our Daycare Unit provides specialised nursing and medical care for up to 14 patients daily, with around 70 patients on our register at any one time.
Services to patients living with a life-limiting illness and their families are provided free of charge. During the day patients can take advantage of a range of therapies which include massage, physiotherapy and aromatherapy.
Our hairdressing salon is very popular with both male and female patients Craft work and diversional therapies provide a sense of purpose and the fun of learning new skills or picking up the threads of old ones.
Transport is provided by a team of volunteer drivers using private cars. Patients with severe mobility problems are transported by ambulance or local taxis equipped for wheelchair access
Meals and refreshments are provided throughout the day and our catering staff are sensitive to the needs of individual patients.
ELECTRONIC PATIENT RECORD AND SHARING OF INFORMATION
Lindsey Lodge Hospice uses a clinical computer system called SystmOne which allows us to record patient information securely onto a computer. This information can then be shared with other clinicians involved in your care so that everyone is fully informed about your medical history, including medication and allergies.
When you register with Lindsey Lodge, clinicians at other organisations that care for you (e.g. GP Surgery, Macmillan Nurses) and use SystmOne will be able to see the information we have recorded for you. For example, a MacMillan Nurse that visits you would be able to see the data entered by clinical staff at Lindsey Lodge Hospice.
If you are not happy for your records to be shared, please discuss it with us.
Iron Will cancer support and social group
