Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice supports people through the most difficult times of their lives. Our doctors, nurses and carers give people the compassion and expert care they need to help them live the best life they possibly can.
Sue Ryder Manorlands is an 15-bed hospice in Oxenhope, Keighley.
Our highly skilled medical staff provide round-the-clock assessment and specialist care to help relieve the physical effects of patients’ conditions such as pain, breathlessness and nausea, whilst our family support and spiritual care teams are on hand to offer emotional support, not only for our patients, but for their family, friends and carers too.
We pride ourselves in making our hospices feel like a home away from home. If a patient would like a takeaway or even a visit from their pet dog, we will go the extra mile to facilitate their requests. We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Family and friends can visit any time they like and will always receive a warm welcome.
We don’t just care for people in our hospices, our expert teams also provide a variety of services in the community, which enable patients to remain in the comfort of their own homes.
Our nurses are available seven days a week for advice and support. They manage physical symptoms such as pain, nausea and fatigue whilst working closely with GPs and other health and social care teams to ensure care and support is co-ordinated.
Our physiotherapists, occupational therapists and complementary therapists are also available to treat people at home as well as in the hospice.
Our Complementary therapy service offers relaxing treatments including reflexology, massage, aromatherapy, acupuncture and Reiki. These can be accessed by day hospice patients, inpatients, out patients and carers.
Complementary therapies can help to reduce stress, anxiety and agitation, as well as aiding sleep and relieving aches and pains.
Our day services support people to be remain at home for as long as possible, providing practical care as well as advice and support.
We provide a friendly, supportive environment which enables people to engage with others who are going through similar experiences. A relaxed safe space which supports people as they adapt to the changes they are experiencing as their illness progresses.
Staff work with individuals to identify personal goals and introduce skills to help manage symptoms and improve wellbeing. There is the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities including arts and crafts, exercise and relaxation, complementary and rehabilitation therapies. There is also access to expert medical teams who can address concerns and facilitate procedures such as blood transfusions, avoiding unnecessary trips to hospital.
Attendance is for an agreed period of time, usually 8 weeks, however this can be flexible according to individual needs. A referral is required and patients are then invited to attend for an assessment visit. Support is also offered to carers and family members
Drop in services
Our drop in service provides an informal source of support for patients and carers. It is a relaxed friendly environment where people can enjoy arts and crafts and complementary therapies as well as benefitting from peer support, advice and signposting. Attendance is flexible and not time limited. There is no need for a formal referral to access this service.
Our teams of physiotherapists and occupational therapists are a vital part of the personalised care that we provide. They advocate palliative rehabilitation supporting patients to engage in life fully and supporting them to maintain function and independence.
Family and bereavement support
The Family Support Team is a multi-disciplinary team made up of highly qualified professionals providing much needed support for patients, families, friends and carers.
We offer a number of services including:
- Pre and post bereavement support via telephone or face to face
- Young people’s counselling (aged 5-18)
- Social work
- Chaplaincy (spiritual care)
Involving those we care for
Feedback from those we care for is very important to us. It helps us to plan for the future, ensure that we are meeting our patient’s needs and constantly improve our services to ensure that we maintain our high levels of care.
To help us achieve this, we are developing user groups made up of patients, families and carers.
Interested in education and training?
