Dove Cottage Hospice, Ridlington

Dove Cottage Day Hospice | Jubilee Lodge | Brooke Road | Ridlington | Rutland | LE15 9AJ – is now closed.

Dove’s tenancy on its beautiful premises at Ridlington has drawn to a close, and Oakham Grange, Barleythorpe has come to the hospice’s rescue. It has resumed its day care services there from June 1st on a Tuesday whilst it seeks a more permanent home. Referrals for anyone living with a life-limiting condition, in need of a day’s respite, are now being received. 

DOVE Cottage is delighted to announce that Oakham Grange has kindly offered temporary accommodation for its day care in their amazing new home at Barleythorpe for the next three months. For more detailed information, please feel free to contact them.

Dove Cottage Day Hospice offers palliative day care services for people living with life-threatening and long-term conditions all free of charge.

As the only day hospice in Rutland, we provide an essential respite service for carers and an opportunity for our guests to socialise within a safe environment, cared for by a team of nurses who are experienced in palliative care.

There is also an indispensable team of volunteers, some produce a tasty 3 course lunch, others offer a friendly ear and a range of expertise, including, massage, crafts, manicures, cooking, games, talks, music, the list goes on!

Volunteers also provide transport to the hospice.
