    The Importance of Innovation

    As well as ensuring compassionate care for our patients and families throughout the current pandemic, the Hospice team has continued to innovate and develop new services aimed at supporting people living with life limiting illness and age-related frailty in the community. Over the past year we have launched a social care at home service, Sunflower Home Care, in partnership with two communities on south Loch Ness and in the Great Glen. Historically, people in these rural communities have struggled to access care at home. Our partnership approach will increase provision of this valuable service.

    We have also formed a partnership with the NHS, Marie Curie and MacMIllan in Highland, with the aim of improving palliative and end of life care for people across the region. The ‘End of Life Care Together’ partners aim to identify individuals in need of support, work with them and their families to identify their preferred choices for care, and co-ordinate providers and community supports to deliver this.

    You can read more about these two transformative projects and about our Helping Hands befriending service in our most recent newsletter.

    Whilst we remain committed to developing services such as these, we are also conscious that income from our traditional fundraising activities has taken a significant hit and is likely to remain challenging until at least the end of the year. Nevertheless, we firmly believe that despite, if not because of, the pandemic we must continue to serve our community as best we can.

    That is why we are asking that you please consider making a small gift or perhaps signing up to a regular donation to our Innovation Appeal. By supporting this fund you would ensure we have the resources to sustain and develop services in response to community need. Your support would make a real and meaningful difference to people at and approaching the end of life all across the Highlands, for many years to come.
