Overview

"Thank you for all the care and support given to my father when attending the day unit. When we asked what he had been doing, he said ‘nothing’, then later in the evening he would say, ‘we had a laugh and a singsong’…"

The Rowan Centre Day Unit provides multidisciplinary support for people who are dealing with advanced progressive incurable illnesses for example cancer, motor neurone disease and end stage heart failure.

Treatment and care are based on the expert knowledge of the professional team in consultation with the patients, their families and carers. Patients initially attend weekly for a period of 4-6 weeks. Goals are set and regularly reviewed by the multidisciplinary team.

We also run a Breathlessness Service within the Day Unit to help support patients and their carers living with this difficult symptom.

Have your say!
We actively encourage you and your family to be involved in our service. You can feedback to us about your care and give us you opinion about services being developed in the future (by attending meetings or participating in surveys).
