Welcome to the Cowal Hospice

Whether you have been newly diagnosed, are undergoing or have completed treatments or are in the advanced stages of your illness there will be a service here appropriate to your needs.

Day services

A range of day therapy services are available within the ground floor area of the Hospice. The objective of these services is to meet the needs of the individual patient, their family or carer and to offer any support which is needed at a worrying and stressful time.

Inpatient services

The Hospice and Supported Care Inpatient Area has six beds which aim to improve the quality of life for people with life limiting conditions, and to address problems such as pain management and symptom control.

Community services

Sheila McKechnie as the Macmillan Nurse is the palliative nurse specialist working in the community in Dunoon and the Cowal Peninsula. She provides symptom management advice, and emotional, psychological and informational support to patients and their families affected by life limiting illnesses.

Patient transport

For patients with a life limiting condition who are attending a major hospital outwith the Cowal peninsula, then our Car Transport service can take you there directly from your home and bring you back afterwards. Quite simply, our drivers take away all the hassle of getting you to and from your treatment.

Our Shop

The cost of providing the above services is met out of the income from our charity shop and from charitable donations. We are also grateful to local businesses who sponsor our work in many ways. But we mustn't forget all our volunteers who freely offer their time and effort to keep the Hospice running. Without our volunteers, we would be lost.
