At Highland Hospice we aim to support people, their families and carers, living with an advancing, life shortening illness in the Highlands to live the best possible life and to prepare for and experience the best possible death. Highland Hospice Helping Hands service is a volunteer delivered befriending service. It provides social and practical support tailored to the individuals needs within their own home/community.
We continue to support people in local communities during COVID-19 pandemic
