Ayrshire Hospice

AYRSHIRE HOSPICE

Local Hospice

The Ayrshire Hospice helps adults throughout Ayrshire and Arran with life-limiting illness such as cancer, neurological conditions, end stage heart failure and lung disease. We help people to live as actively as they can to the end of their lives - however long that may be, wherever that may be. The care we provide not only seeks to alleviate pain and symptoms, but also allows people to stay engaged with friends, family and their community. We not only look after people’s physical needs but also attend to their emotional, spiritual and social needs too. The patient and their family are at the centre of all the care we provide. Family members, close friends and carers are also supported both during a person’s illness and following bereavement.
