Ayrshire Hospice Stories

David tells his story about the benefits of Solus


Project Description

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 David Blaikie’s story, the first in the series.

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.

About Ayrshire Hospice

The Ayrshire Hospice provides outstanding quality care and services which helps those with any life-limiting illness. Care is provided where there is no cure for the condition, but which improves the quality of each day for people who have a limited time to live.

The charity helps adults throughout Ayrshire and Arran with life-limiting illness such as cancer, neurological conditions, end stage heart failure and lung disease. They help people to live as actively as they can to the end of their lives – however long that may be, whereever 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. Ayrshire Hospice 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 provided. Family members, close friends and carers are also supported both during a person’s illness and following bereavement.

They provide care in a number of places, including people’s own homes, hospitals and care homes as well as in their own purpose built day care and in-patient units. Wherever suits the patients best.
