Day Therapy

Our day services offer a friendly, informal environment for people who live in the community and may benefit from the support of Hospice services. Highland Hospice provides Day Therapy services in Inverness and Caithness. The Inverness service is based in The Netley Day Therapy Centre at Highland Hospice. The Caithness service alternates between Lyth Arts Centre and The Pultney Centre, Wick.

Living Well

Attendance at one of our Living Well days can offer access to a range of group activities as well as individually tailored programmes of therapeutic activities to help address some of the physical, emotional, social and spiritual difficulties you may be experiencing. Our aim is to improve the quality of life for people living with an advancing, life shortening illness by helping people to manage their condition, maintain independence and develop new friendships.

Referral to Living Well can be made by a community nurse, a Macmillan team member, GP or consultant, or any other healthcare professional involved in your care. You can use the referral forms at the bottom of this page.

Live and Learn

Live and Learn is an informal drop-in service available to anyone affected by a life-limiting or long-term health condition. This includes families, carers and people who have been bereaved. It provides an opportunity to meet people in a similar circumstance and gain informal support from hospice staff and local community healthcare professionals. The drop-in sessions take place weekly in Inverness and monthly in Caithness. Anyone can drop in throughout the day, there is no need for a referral to attend Live and Learn.
