Together we support people and their families across Forth Valley, Cumbernauld and Kilsyth living with life-limiting conditions to live and die well.
Because every moment counts.

80% of patients are cared for out with the Hospice building, as is their wish.

How we can help About us

Live Your Life Team

Are you living with, or caring for someone, with a life limiting illness?

Many people believe hospice care is about dying, but at Strathcarron Hospice, we believe it’s also all about living your life well.
We aim to help you or your loved one live a fulfilling life for as long as possible.

We can help you navigate uncertainty, chat through challenges and together find ways for you to get on with living your life.

Tel: 01324 827383 A direct line to Strathcarron Hospice.
All the support we offer is free and phone line is open 10am-4pm Monday to Friday.

Speak to our Team

1,380

We provide specialist care and support to 1,380 people living with and dying from a life limiting illness, making 8,479 patient visits across our local communities annually.

274

We care for 274 patients with complex needs in our inpatient unit and 58 patients were successfully discharged to go home.

14,632

We need to raise £14,632 every single day to keep our vital services running.

Why support us?

We want excellent palliative care and expertise to benefit as many people across our communities as possible.

There are 4,000 deaths in our local areas every year, and we have just 24 beds in our In Patient Unit. Last year our team carried out 8294 visits to people across our local communities, as we now support more patients at the very end of life through [email protected] than in the Hospice itself.

With only one third of our hospice funded by the Government, we are incredibly grateful to our generous supporters who make up the significant shortfall. Without these generous ongoing donations, we just could not continue delivering our valuable services free of charge.
Thank you.
