Hospice Manager

Every day of your life matters – from the first to the last. That’s why we believe everyone living with a terminal illness should be able to get the high quality care and support they, and their families need, so they can get the most from the time they have left.

Over the last 60 years, we’ve been there for hundreds of thousands of families all over the UK, caring for them at home, in one of our hospices, and in hospitals.

In Scotland, our specialist teams at Marie Curie Hospices, community-based Marie Curie Nurses, trained Helper volunteers and Support Line advisers offer expert care, support and information, so people don’t have to face the most difficult time in their lives by themselves.

The Marie Curie Hospice, Glasgow provides specialist care and support for around 1,400 people each year in a friendly, welcoming environment. At our hospice, we help people achieve the best possible quality of life ΜΆ whether that’s through helping to relieve their symptoms or giving them any advice and support they need on practical, emotional, social, psychological or spiritual matters. Many people we look after come for the day for all kinds of therapies, support and activities. We also support people in their homes and provide in-patient care for those who need it.
