Our centre, Ty Hosbis, is based in the grounds of Whitchurch Hospital, in Cardiff. Built in 2005, Ty Hosbis is a bright, vibrant building refurbished with special thanks to the Hodge Foundation in 2018.

We have no beds or wards at Ty Hosbis. Instead, we offer care and support to our patients at home but also at our centre with day clinics. We spend time understanding the preferences of those we care for and where they wish to stay. We work with patients and their families to support whatever that choice might be. Patients are usually seen within a week by a Consultant and a Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS), and they work with each patient to work out what care is needed.

At Ty Hosbis, we provide care, counselling, occupational therapy and advice on welfare rights. Patients can receive reflexology, hypnotherapy and use of our sensory room. We have also hosted students from Cardiff Metropolitan University and University of South Wales to deliver Arts and Music Therapy.

We hold group sessions, such as ‘Be Inspired’ where patients work on improving breathlessness and sessions on pain management. We also work closely with Ty Hafan to host a Young Adults Palliative Care clinic, for our younger patients.

We offer patients and their families counselling, and bereavement counselling following the death of a loved one. This includes one to one sessions, group sessions, children’s bereavement groups and coffee groups, where individuals can meet others who have recently been bereaved.

During the COVID-19 outbreak we remain open and are adapting our services to continue to care for our patients whilst observing Government guidelines.

Complementary Therapies

Complementary therapies are treatments that can be provided alongside conventional care to aid relaxation and improve your sense of wellbeing. At City Hospice we offer complementary therapy treatments to patients, their families and carers, and those who have been bereaved.

Gardens

Our beautiful gardens are a quiet spot, full of nature, which can be enjoyed by patients, carers, fellow volunteers and visitors.

Day Centre

Every week we hold activities at Ty Hosbis for patients who are looking for social interaction, a change of scenery, to learn something new or just have a couple of hours of enjoyment. Often patients are collected by the City Hospice minibus. These sessions also provide the carer with some respite.
