About the Service
Ardgowan Hospice is a compassionate place of care for people living in Inverclyde who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, such as cancer, heart failure, lung disease, kidney failure or neurological conditions.
We provide not only physical and medical support but also important practical, emotional and social support to patients diagnosed with a life-limiting illness and their families and carers.
Hospice care can help you and your family feel better, and feel more in control, making sure you are cared for in the right way, so that you and those close to you have the time to do, and talk about, what matters to you most.
Short stays in our in-patient unit can give us the opportunity to assess your issues more easily. This allows us to put support in place and monitor the effect of the treatment more closely than if you were at home. The aim is that you will feel better as your symptoms will be more manageable, allowing you to have a better quality of life.
