Information and Support

 Here to help you find out more

Our information and support activities are for anyone to just drop in:

  • find out more about the care we offer
  • attend discussion groups & presentations
  • get practical advice
  • access literature
  • café style support.


Open House – The Hospice & Beacon Centre

Our Open House sessions run every week:

  • Every Tuesday at the Hospice, Farnham, between 2pm – 4pm
  • Every Friday at the Beacon Centre, Guildford, between 10am – 12.00pm.

They are perfect for anyone who would like to find out more about the care and services which we offer, perhaps if they have just been referred to PTHC or have a relative who has started receiving our care. Open House also provides an important link for patients who have been discharged from Day Hospice but would like to keep in touch.

Benefits & Entitlements

These sessions offer an opportunity to talk to our Benefits & Entitlements Advisor about accessing things such as benefits, disabled car badges, carelines and support at home.


We can give you details of the services which you can access to help you with practical, physical and emotional matters.

Information sessions

These sessions offer help and advice on a range of subjects, such as: guidance on dietary issues; help with writing an Advance Care Plan, to understand preferences and wishes and set out the type of care that you would like to receive before you become too unwell to make such decisions; information on legal issues such as making a Will; Lasting Power of Attorney and Guardianship; and information about planning a funeral, including the different types of funerals which you can choose from.

Look out for notices advertising times of sessions, or ask a member of staff.
