Nursing care and peer support for adults with life-limiting illnesses.

Laughter and fun

There are normally about 25 guests who visit the Day Care Unit each day. This gives you the opportunity to meet new people and make friends. There’s lots of laughter and fun alongside enjoying home cooked food and refreshments. Everyone who comes to Day Care is in a similar situation and knowing this can be very supportive.

Day Care provides a break from your routine and is particularly helpful if you’re housebound. It also provides respite for relatives and carers who can get time for themselves to enjoy a break or rest from caring.

Treetops Hospice Care is a non-denominational organisation and welcomes people of all, and no, faith(s). If you have any specific religious or spiritual needs we will endeavour to meet them if possible.

I’ve felt a lot better since I’ve been coming here – more happier in myself.

Nursing care

Our qualified staff become key members of your care team working closely with other health professionals. This ensures you have the appropriate care and advice to maintain the optimum level of support and care you need.

You will have access to your nursing records if you wish, and be assured that all staff at Treetops Hospice Care have a duty to keep their contents confidential.

You feel so safe here and nothing is too much of a problem.

Day Care Unit guest


If you are unable to provide your own transport, a volunteer driver can transport you to and from Treetops Hospice Care. A specially adapted taxi or minibus can be arranged for guests who have to remain in wheelchairs.

Coming to Treetops changed my life. All I have to say is praise for such a wonderful place.
