40 years of Making Every Moment Count The whole Hospice Team extends their thanks to the public for their ongoing support. The Hospice exists for you and your families and we are humbled to reach 40 years of caring for local families. None of this would have been possible without the individual people, groups and businesses who support the work we do. It’s been an exciting time for the Hospice over the past couple of weeks, in terms of the 40th anniversary, and more importantly, being able to welcome back patients’ families and friends to visit as restrictions have eased slightly. Welcoming visitors in is an important aspect of all we do and has probably been one of the most challenging aspects of the past year when this was heavily restricted and to witness the joy on both patients and nurses faces when visitors come is beautiful. We are delighted to announce today that the 40th anniversary appeal has reached its target of £40,000 and we thank each and everyone who has been able to support this in some way, big or small. We thank our partners, including the Falkirk Herald, for their coverage of this appeal. We are currently developing the Hospice services to meet new demands brought forward by the pandemic and these will be announced shortly. Much has changed in the past 40 years but our core values of care, compassion and dignity remain as intact today as they did in 1981.
