Hospice at Home

Hospice at Home offers patients an alternative to inpatient care and instead, care for them in their own homes in the last stages of their life. We will work closely with your primary care team e.g. your District Nurse and General Practitioner and others involved in your care. Blythe House staff will follow the District Nurse’s care plans to ensure both safety and continuity of care.

Referrals will be accepted from:

  • Health and Social Care professionals
  • Relatives, carers and friends
  • Patients can refer themselves

Tel: 01298 813007 or 01298 811770


Living Well Service

The Living Well Service supports patients to cope with the different ways their illness has affected them. Regardless of the stage of illness the LWS can assist in promoting independence, empowering patients to maximise their quality of life. The LWS is on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday each week for patients who are living within the High Peak and surrounding areas. Through a variety of therapeutic interventions patients are assisted to feel more empowered, gaining the confidence to prepare for their future and manage the impact of their illness.

Volunteer for Blythe House

We have a wide range of volunteer roles based at the hospice and in our four shops located in Buxton, Chapel-en-le-Frith, New Mills and Whaley Bridge. Some of our volunteers are actively involved in more than one role.

Our volunteers undertake many different and important roles for us, and they bring a wide range of skills and experience to those roles. Whether it's helping in one of our shops, driving, covering reception, helping at fundraising events or providing therapies, or one of the many other roles, volunteers are an essential part of the Blythe House team.
