We have inpatient beds available at all our three sites in Canterbury, Ashford and Thanet. The team there can help with difficulties such as pain, nausea or breathlessness that may be harder to deal with at home. We can help bring these symptoms back under control so where possible you can spend precious time with your loved ones.

When people come to the ward we want them to feel at home. We try to avoid routines, putting up notices or imposing our ideas of what needs to happen.

Our approach to care is always on an individual basis – everyone is different so we have very skilled and adaptable people in our teams so we can meet your needs.

Our facilities

Each of our three hospices has recently refurbished single sex bays with some private rooms available. All of our rooms have French doors that open onto our lovingly tended gardens, patios and outdoor seating areas.

There are places for you and your family to spend time together including family lounges, dining rooms, and children’s play areas. There are also secluded quiet spaces indoors and in our beautiful gardens.

Who you may meet

During your stay, you can choose to access support from as many as 20 highly skilled Pilgrims professionals. All are expertly trained to care for every aspect of your wellbeing – in mind and body.

Pilgrims nurses, consultants, doctors, therapists, counsellors and the spiritual care team are just some of the people you may meet. They are all on hand to support with anything you need and will make sure your wishes are taken into consideration as much as possible.

Your family and friends including children and teenagers, can also access any support they may need.
