Ayrshire Hospice – April’s Story
Patient story for the Hospice day services
The Ayrshire Hospice wanted to tell the story of Solus Day Centre. A place that people with life limiting illness can come for respite, relaxation and stimulation. This is part of a series of patient stories talking about their conditions and the support they have had from the Hospice. Working with The Ayrshire Hospice has been a delight, and we have been truly inspired by the stories we have heard. It is encouraging to hear that the films have been very well received after initial viewings from sponsors, volunteers, supporters and staff. Find out more here
The Ayrshire Hospice provides care and services which improves the quality of each day for people who have a limited time to live. They 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 they provide not only seeks to alleviate pain and symptoms, but also allows people to stay engaged with friends, family and their community. The patient and their family are at the centre of all the care provided. Family members, close friends and carers are also supported both during a person’s illness and following bereavement.
The Ayrshire Hospice provides care and respite to help people with life-limiting illness. The hospice approached TMC with a view to producing high-quality video stories as told by patients who attend the daycare centre called Solus. After visiting the hospice we could clearly see the outstanding care that was being provided. It was a story worth telling and telling well. As this was a charity, TMC offered to produce a series of videos on a complimentary basis. The videos tell the stories of four patients each from unique viewpoints. This is April’s story.
