Update: Please note that some of our services are not running/not open due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are unsure, please contact the hospice or your key worker.

Our Inpatient Unit (IPU) provides short-term care for patients needing symptom control, respite, rehabilitation, or end of life care.

Our specialist team includes doctors and nurses who work alongside our social workers, physiotherapists, occupational and complementary therapists.

We have 10 homely and comfortable rooms, all with Freeview TV, phones, internet access, en-suites, as well as their own private patios, overlooking our beautiful gardens.

One of our rooms has been specifically designed for young people and their families. The suite is a fully accessible studio apartment with a kitchenette, bathroom, modern entertainment centre, and private outdoor area, as well as a sofa bed for visiting family and friends.

All our daily meals are cooked on-site using the best fresh ingredients and we can cater for any dietary requirement or appetite.

Family and friends are welcome to visit at any time and within the IPU we have a family lounge, with a kitchen and comfortable sofas, offering you somewhere to relax and unwind.

Visiting hours

There are no set visiting hours on the IPU. If you are visiting a friend or relative, we ask you to report to our main reception. If you are visiting outside of normal working hours the main doors may be shut. If this is the case please use the intercom to call through to the unit.


Farleigh Hospice has its own private car park. Visitor spaces can be found on the right-hand side as you first enter the car park. All parking is free, however, we do ask everyone to register their car at reception and if you wish to stay overnight please request a visitor parking permit.
