We care for more than 1,200 new patients, their families and carers each year in the hospice, at home and in the community. Wherever you choose to receive your care, we are here for you and your family for every step of the way. Being referred to a hospice can be daunting. Our welcoming team is here to make the experience as easy and comfortable as possible.
Hospice care aims to improve the quality of life and wellbeing of people with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition. It helps people live as fully and as well as they can to the end of their lives, however long that may be.
Our approach to care also supports family members, carers and others close to the person who is receiving care. This support is offered during a person’s illness and following their death.
Our care is also known as palliative care and our palliative care team includes, doctors, consultants, specialist palliative care nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social workers, counsellors and Glasgow Hospice volunteers.
We take a person-centred approach to work with you, your family, and carers to achieve what is important to you.
If you are referred to the hospice you may be cared for in our new, purpose-built building by our specialist palliative care team. Alternatively, you can receive palliative care in hospital, your home or any other place of residence.
We provide a holistic range of services to support all those affected by a life-limiting illness. All our care is free to you, and your family and carers.
Our services aim to support everyone’s physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing. The aim of The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice is to support people to live as well as possible for as long as possible.
We do this by providing Palliative care support and holistic support for patients and their families, carers and friends, during their time with us and beyond. Our team, of doctors, nurses, therapists, counsellors, chaplains, social workers and volunteers, treat patients in their own homes, at other places of care, and in the hospice.
At the Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice we offer care for everyone living with the impact of a life-limiting or life-shortening illness, including family or carers. Our Family Support Service provides social work, counselling, emotional and spiritual support.
