Update from Maggie's
We just wanted to update you all on how we are working at Maggie’s Highlands in these changed times. Throughout the pandemic we have been supporting people by phone and in groups run via zoom.
We are now able to offer prebooked face to face appointments in the centre, whilst continuing our group work online. At the moment we’re not open for drop-in in the building, but our garden is open for people to use if coming to the hospital.
Remember that Maggie’s is not just here for the person with cancer, but also their family and friends, which becomes especially important if the person with cancer dies. We provide one to one bereavement support and we also have a bereavement group that meets twice a month.
The other thing that may be of particular interest is our parents group, which will support parents to speak to their children about cancer no matter what their age and also understand their children’s reactions to having someone in the family with cancer.
