BETHESDA CARE HOME & HOSPICE
A Work of Faith - A Christian response to Human Suffering

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.
