What We Do

Palliative care is a multidisciplinary approach to providing medical care and support for people with life-limiting illnesses. It focuses on improving the quality of life for both patients and their families through the prevention and relief of symptoms, and by the treatment of pain and related physical, psychosocial and spiritual problems.

Day services

The Day Centre provides a range of creative and complementary therapies, counselling, spiritual and well-being services.

Inpatient services

The Cowal Hospice and Supported Care Inpatient Unit provides symptom control, respite and end of life care in a calm and comfortable environment.

Community services

In the community setting, care is provided by your local MacMillan Nurse, by Community Nurses and Nursing Staff operating within the NHS, with support from GPs and a wide range of other health professionals.

Patient transport

Our Patient Car Transport service is provided by a band of volunteer drivers who transport patients from all over Cowal to and from hospitals and care centres in Greenock, Paisley, Glasgow and Clydebank.

Our History

In 1992 a group of enthusiastic local people, who had identified a need in Cowal, got together to set up a trust to raise money to provide a hospice for our community.
