In 1989 Blythe House started helping people in the High Peak affected by cancer or life-limiting illnesses. We've come a long way since then, but our mission remains the same.
Blythe House Hospicecare, Chapel-en-le-Frith, offers free, individualised, holistic care and support for anyone in the High Peak living with cancer or other serious, life-limiting illness. Discovering what's important, being offered practical help and advice and exploring new ways of coping enables people to live their lives to the full through an often difficult and stressful time. Clients are warmly welcomed and a range of group or individual services is available for them, their carers, family and friends. Support groups such as Prostate Cancer, Stepping Stones, Breast Care and Circle of Friends meet on a regular basis.
How we do it
Our highly-skilled team of specialist doctors, nurses, complementary therapists, counsellors and volunteers offers a range of services and supports in a positive and tranquil environment. At Blythe House, specialist interventions can include information provision, symptom control, pain relief, counselling, complementary therapy, mindfulness training and much more. A chat and a laugh with others in a similar situation can also be highly beneficial, or a creative arts session may reveal previously hidden talents!
