Sunflower Home Care

Who we are

Sunflower Home Care is the newest provision from Highland Hospice, bringing home-based health and social care to rural and remote communities across the Highlands.

In 2017 we recognised that there was a lack of health and social care in many of the more rural and remote areas across the Highlands. So we decided to try and help these communities. We know from years of experience that, wherever possible, people want to live in their own home for as long as they can and with Sunflower Home Care we can help them do that.

At Highland Hospice we’ve always been passionate about giving people the very best standard of care when they need it most, and now with Sunflower Home Care, our vision is to ensure that everyone across the Highlands has access to the care they need where they need it most.

What we do

We work in partnership with the NHS, who identify those in need of a little extra help at home. Our fully trained staff then organise a visit and provide varying levels of care, all tailored to the individual's needs. This care can vary from getting someone up and dressed or reminding them to take their medications, to prepping meals and providing some much-needed company.

Partner with us

We rely on our community partnerships to ensure we work together with each local community to meet their needs. We currently work with 3 Glens in Fort Augustus, Glengarry and Glenmoriston and Boleskine Community Care in Stratherrick and Foyers. Read more about our partners here. These partnerships have been instrumental in Sunflower Home Care’s successful set up. Partners help us to raise awareness of this new provision within each community and provide much needed funding for things like training and uniforms. They even help us to recruit the very best local teams and we really couldn't provide this service without them.

If you’re interested in finding out more about becoming a community partner and helping us to provide home-based health and social care within your local rural or remote Highland community, please contact Vicky to find out more.

Working together, we can achieve more.
