We are delighted to launch our new Philosophy of Care

 

 

Our purpose is to provide palliative and end of life care to people living with or affected by a life limiting illness in Renfrewshire and parts of East Renfrewshire.

 

Working in Partnership

 

In partnership with patients and their families we provide compassionate, individualised care that addresses not only the physical signs of illness but also emotional, spiritual and social needs. We assist and support patients throughout their illness and end of life continuing to comfort their loved ones into bereavement and remembrance. We are always adapting what we provide to the changing needs of individuals and communities. Consequently, our work is not confined to our hospice building and, through various engagement and collaboration, we are able to bring the hospice approach to care to other settings. We seek to optimise all that brings meaning, comfort and hope, ensuring that we value and celebrate life in all its diversity.
