Compassionate Lanarkshire (CLAN)
Compassionate Lanarkshire (CLAN) is a
partnership project between Kilbryde, St Andrews and Strathcarron Hospices which aims
to support vulnerable and isolated individuals
and families in Lanarkshire affected by a lifelimiting
illnesses. These illnesses include; cancer, chronic
obstructive pulmonary disease, heart disease
and progressive neurological conditions.
CLAN offers emotional, therapeutic
and practical support to help individuals and
families identify, value and build on their strengths
to achieve the best possible quality of life.
Owing to COVID-19, CLAN has been unable to visit people in their own homes however our team have continued to support people and their families by phone.
During summer 2020, CLAN will continue to work with people who are isolated at home using digital technology to provide emotional and psychological support. This technology will be used to allow us to carry out our initial assessments and other interventions remotely. We will work with patients identifying their area of need and explore their options.
If required Kilbryde Hospice will offer various remote complementary therapies. This will depend on the needs of the person.
Kilbryde will also continue our remote volunteer befriending service.
