To provide and develop the best possible care

Not only do we provide hospice and neurological care across the UK, we go the extra mile to support people so they can live the fullest life possible.

Over the last year, we’ve:

  • Grown our Online Community and Support, which provides information and support to people when a loved one is dying or has died. The site consists of a peer support forum and an advice section with informative articles giving expert answers to frequently asked questions. The site made huge progress last year, with an average of 4,500 people visiting each month.

  • Helped people to manage their condition in the community with our Self-Management at Home service at Dee View Court in Aberdeen. This free service is designed to offer long-term support to people with life-changing neurological conditions within the home, over the phone and in the community. It offers short and long-term support, and includes practical tools, techniques and information to help people manage their health and wellbeing.

  • Worked with the British Institute of Human Rights to develop the ‘What Matters to Me’ training programme, which helps practitioners use human rights as a practical framework for ethical decision-making, and ensures compassion and dignity in end of life care. This training programme, funded by the Burdett Trust for Nurses, is available to anyone who comes into contact with someone receiving end of life care. 18 workshops had been arranged by the end of 2016–17.
