Katie Buchanan We know that most people in their final days of life would prefer to be at home if at all possible - and be with those who are important to them. However, worries about what might happen and the burden on families often results in people going into hospital to die.
Strathcarron [email protected] service aims to provide personal, practical and emotional support at this crucial time in people's lives to enable them to stay at home right to the end.
I feel extremely privileged to be part the [email protected] team, so set myself the challenge of running the Stirling 1/2 marathon on Sunday 28th April and the Glasgow 1/2 marathon on Sunday 29th September to raise some money for the hospice. I am hoping to raise £650, which will cover the cost of [email protected] to care for one patient at home surrounded by everyone and everything they love, in their last two weeks of life.
All donations gratefully received 😊 Katie Buchanan
