We aim to support you wherever you are and in the way that helps you the most. This is often not near the end of life but rather when your illness is having a significant impact on your daily living.
You can be referred to the Hospice by your GP or other health professional involved with your care. The first contact with Strathcarron Hospice often begins with an introductory visit from one of the Community Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) Team to you in your own home. Often after a few visits, you will find that you are more equipped to manage your symptoms and daily living and may not require any further support for some time.
For others, you may have longer term support from the Community Team, or go on to use our Inpatient or Daycare services for a period of time to support you in managing the effects of your illness.
If you or someone close to you are nearing the end of life, our [email protected] team can provide personal care and emotional support for you and your family in your own home. They work closely with the District Nursing team and social carers to bring you whatever services you need to enable you to stay at home.
If you are in hospital, you can ask the staff for support from the Hospital Palliative Care Team. One of the Strathcarron Hospice Consultants works with this team. We have close working relationships with Forth Valley Royal Hospital and other hospitals in the nearby regions. This helps ensure patients move between the hospital and Hospice as smoothly as possible.
