Highland Hospice envisions a community where access to specialist palliative care services and support is available equitably throughout the area. As the only hospice serving adults with incurable life limiting disease in the Highlands of Scotland, Highland Hospice is acknowledged as a resource of specialist palliative care expertise.

Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of our patients and their families, through the prevention and relief of suffering, by addressing their physical, psychological and social needs.

As demand increases, our many services continue to run and expand. We currently have a ten bed In Patient Unit in Inverness and our Day Hospice service now covers Portree, Invergordon, Thurso and Fort William, as well as continuing to run in Inverness. Our multidisciplinary team comprises medical and nursing staff, a chaplain, social worker, counsellors, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and complementary therapists.

Our medical staff provide specialist support within hospitals and care homes, as well as visiting patients at home and providing education and training for other healthcare professionals. We also provide bereavement counselling in bereavement, Highland-wide, for families and friends of our former patients.
