"Wouldn't change a thing"

About: Ayrshire Hospice

(as a service user),

I was diagnosed with stomach cancer and went to the Beatson for chemotherapy and then to the hospice for 2 weeks recuperation. My balance wasn’t good so I came for physiotherapy every day. I now come to the day service every Tuesday for physiotherapy. I couldn’t ask for better treatment, it’s helped my balance greatly. It has improved my lifestyle, I feel better within and it has improved my confidence.

I like the friendliness at the day centre, everyone is very helpful. I like the spirit, people here are never defeated, if something doesn’t work they try something else.

Everything is perfect the way it is, I wouldn’t change a thing.
