A Work of Faith - A Christian response to Human Suffering
The Christian community of the Western Isles, inspired by an urgent need it could not ignore, has followed the example of Christ in reaching out to help the sick.
A Hospice for the Hebrides - The Outer Hebridean Isles of Lewis, Harris, Uist, Benbecula and Barra lie off the northwest coast of Scotland in the Atlantic Ocean. Rugged and wind-swept, they are characterised by stark beauty and great contrasts, peat moors and rocky mountains, white sandy beaches and steep cliffs.
Bethesda have a large staff team with a diverse skill set and many years of experience with older peoples care and importantly specialist palliative care.
Bethesda is managed and administered by a Registered Manager according to standards and policies agreed by the interdenominational Bethesda's Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) Trustees.
Bethesda Hospice provides 4 hospice beds for specialist palliative care and 21 care home beds. It is required to raise over £370,000 per year to keep the hospice open and offers a much needed and caring service to those who are terminally ill and those who require nursing care.
Bethesda Nursing Home provides 21 Residential places for people with full-time care needs and 9 respite care places for those in the community who's carers need a break so they can continue to care for thier loved ones.
