Mum had spent two weeks in Forth Valley Hospital in Larbert recovering from explorative surgery and it was discovered that she had inoperable stomach cancer. She then spent three weeks at Strathcarron. The ethos at Strathcarron is wonderful and it seems that everyone is signed up to that positive ethos, including the cleaners and cooks. Not just the medical professionals. The nursing staff were so attentive and ensured that mum was turned regularly and made as comfortable as possible. They built relationships with mum, knowing that they would lose her. That takes a special kind of person, yet all of the nurses knew mum well. When mum died, the staff immediately turned their attention to supporting our family. Mum was given the gift of a dignified death and we will be forever grateful to the staff of Strathcarron Hospice.
