Tain Dental Care have entered two teams to compete in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival relay on Sunday 31st May 2015. 26 miles is a long way but we'll all be training really hard over the next few months! We're doing this to raise funds to support Highland Hospice- please give generously!
Highland Hospice is the only hospice caring for adults with incurable life limiting illness in the Highlands of Scotland, and is acknowledged as the centre of specialist palliative care expertise in the region. A full multidisciplinary team is employed to provide true holistic care and comprises medical and nursing staff, occupational, physio and complementary therapists, a chaplain and family support workers. The Hospice currently provides a 10 bed In Patient Unit in Inverness and a Day Therapy Centre on the same site. Medical staff, working closely with NHS colleagues, provide a consultancy service within Raigmore and community hospitals as well as visiting patients at home throughout the Highlands.
The Hospice also provides bereavement counselling for relatives, a 24 hour telephone helpline and education and training for other healthcare professionals to enhance their ability to provide palliative care in their own communities. An Outreach Team also takes Day Therapy services to Thurso, Dornoch, Fort William and Skye. We continue to explore the benefits of modern technology in order to maintain close communications with our patients in far outlying areas.
