Macmillan Information & Support Centre
Blythe House Hospice, Chapel-en-le-Frith, offers free, individualised, holistic care and support for anyone in the High Peak living with cancer or other serious, life threatening 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. Patients are welcomed as guests and a range of group or individual services is available for them, their carers, family and friends. Support groups such as Carer's Day, 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 palliative care interventions can include symptom control, pain relief, counselling, complementary therapy, a chat and a laugh with others in a similar situation or an art therapy session that may reveal previously hidden talents!
