Highland Hospice initially opened its Day Hospice doors in 1987, and our ten-bedded In Patient Unit admitted its first patients in 1988.
Our aim in specialist palliative care is to improve the quality of life for people throughout the Highlands who have life limiting illness and require specific treatment for difficult problems such as pain and symptom control or require rehabilitation.
Many people comment on how friendly and uplifting the atmosphere is in the Hospice. It is an informal and relaxed environment for people with serious illness, and our staff aim to meet the needs of the individual, their family and their carers.
We believe in making the most of life, and there is a spirit of enjoyment and togetherness here. Whatever your reason for coming to the Hospice, we try to make it as supportive an environment as possible.
