Keech Palliative Care Centre
People are often surprised when they find out that most people we care for go home at the end of each day.
Our Keech Palliative Care Centre (KPCC) is a bright and welcoming place where patients come to every day, once or sometimes twice a week.
How can the Keech Palliative Care Centre help me?
Our aim is to help you to live well with your condition, for longer.
You may attend the Keech Palliative Care Centre to help with your symptom management or for medical support. There is also a variety of therapies such as music and art therapy to help your emotional well-being. We also offer complementary therapy sessions and you can get involved in our independence and well-being activity groups. We also offer day care, individual appointments and pop-in sessions. Don’t be worried about attending the hospice – we understand that the thought of coming to the hospice for the first time can be daunting, but we really are a hospice full of life.

What’s it like?
The Keech Palliative Care Centre is a welcoming place which looks out onto two beautiful gardens. Inside, there is a lounge area, art room and individual consulting and treatment rooms. We also have an on-site restaurant called Valerie’s offering freshly prepared meals and there’s a vending machine too.
What happens when I come to the Keech Palliative Care Centre?
We will meet with you and discuss your needs, then develop a care plan to suit you, usually lasting six weeks. This could include symptom control, monitoring and assessments, spiritual support, specialist emotional and practical support, and therapies.
How long will you support me?
We’ll be here to support you for as long as you need us and it is your choice when you stop receiving our care.
If you need us again, it’s easy to be referred back to the Keech Palliative Care Centre. Just speak to our My Care Co-ordination Team by calling 0808 180 7788.
