Highland Hospice is launching a new care service in Inverness, and urgently looking for practitioners to help get it up and running.

The Care at Home service will support people at end of life with both cancer and non-cancer conditions, and is ready to launch following recruitment.

Paula Cooper, Highland Hospice’s Head of Clinical Services, commented, “We are so excited to introduce this service to the Inverness area, as we believe it is very much needed, with so many people with palliative care needs desiring to be looked after at home.”

“Highland Hospice is instrumental in the End of Life Care Together partnership consisting of organisations across voluntary, health and social sectors who are all committed to improving care towards the end of life for all.”

“Launching this Care at Home service is a big step towards our goal in meeting people’s end of life preferences.”

Vicky Kilgour, Sunflower Home Care Manager, added, “It’s such a privilege to look after a person at the end of their life. If you are a compassionate and caring person, who would like to make a real difference in the community of Inverness, joining us as a Sunflower Care at Home Practitioner could be the perfect job for you.”

“This is a rewarding job that offers personal and professional fulfilment and development, and comes with excellent training and great opportunities. We cover travel time and mileage, as well as funding and supporting a SVQ if needed.”

“If you think you could help, please do get in touch – even for an informal chat before applying.”

Duties in the new role include supporting family members and other professionals to provide excellent holistic, person-centred, palliative care; supporting service users with their physical and emotional needs and assisting with personal care, toileting, bathing, dressing and meals.
