If you’re staying at Keswick Community Hospital, you can order 3 meals a day plus snacks. Most of our food is prepared from fresh in our hospital kitchens. Healthy options and a choice of vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, lactose free, halal and kosher options are on the menu.

Tea, coffee and snacks are served throughout the day. If you miss a meal, biscuits, toast and sandwiches can be requested at any time. Just let the ward staff know you’re hungry.

Hospice at Home can visit palliative care patients to give you aromatherapy treatments. Essential oils are blended for individual symptoms and are either softly massaged or inhaled. If you’d like to access the aromatherapy service, ask ward staff for details.

If you’d like a hair dresser to visit you on the ward, our ward staff can organise this for you.

Hospital chaplains are available to provide spiritual support to patients and visitors of all faiths and beliefs. You do not need to be religious or attend church to receive help from our chaplains.

A chaplain visits the wards every Wednesday to talk and listen to people. They can also be contacted by ward staff for special visits and emergencies. 

Our chaplains have links with many faith communities and will always try to get an appropriate representative when asked to do so. Your own priest, imam or minister can also visit you in hospital.

A Faith Box containing books, prayer and spiritual resources is available to all inpatients. Ask ward staff if you’d like to look through it.

There’s an outdoor seating area in front of the main entrance that patients and visitors can use.
