A Scottish charity offering respite to people with long-term medical conditions is holding an open day in Inverness today.
Leuchie House, which is based in North Berwick, offers breaks with 24-hour nursing care for patients and their carers in a non-clinical environment.
Leuchie House offers respite breaks for people and their family members living with a range of physical conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, stroke, motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy and Huntington’s.
All ages are catered for, with physiotherapy, complementary therapies and activities being provided.
Leuchie House is based in North Berwick, but takes people from across Scotland and further afield.
A team from the centre is at Eastgate Shopping Centre in Inverness on today until 3.30pm.
Their chief executive Mairi O’Keefe said: “The team is looking forward to spending time in the Highlands, letting people who desperately need our service know that we are available.
“The philosophy at Leuchie is that everyone deserves a proper holiday, whatever the deterioration in their physical condition. Leuchie is a beautiful country house, set in fully accessible grounds near the coast and we are committed to offering our guests a truly luxury break, with the added reassurance of 24-hour expert nursing care. We look forward to passing that information on to people in the Highlands.”
