Michael Sobell House
where our house is your home.
Since 1977, Michael Sobell House has offered a comforting and nurturing space for people to stay, both temporarily to gain support with symptoms, and to experience their last moments if this is their wish.
We offer twelve beds, including two cuddlebeds, for people to come and stay with us both early in an illness and in the later stages of an illness. In some instances, those close to them are also able to stay over.
Our Hospice at Home team work with the team at Michael Sobell House to ensure that, wherever possible, everyone who wishes to die at home is able to. If part of an individual’s care plan is to spend the last days of their life at the House, they and those close to them will be supported by our specialist multidisciplinary team to ensure a stay which is peaceful, comfortable and free from worry and pain.
What matters to you matters to us, and we strive to personalise each person’s stay as much as possible – right down to the colour of their duvet. We have a spacious and bright cafe area to sit, chat and enjoy freshly made food prepared; our chefs are dedicated to working with each individual to prepare tasty meals they enjoy, catering to all dietary requirements. People staying at the House are also welcome to order a takeaway curry or enjoy a pizza and film night with family and friends!
Inside Michael Sobell House, our tranquil Japanese-style garden welcomes you as you come through the front doors. Our landscaped garden, maintained by volunteers, is a place where you can relax in a natural environment amongst greenery and listen to the birds.
