RACHEL HOUSE, Scotland's first children's hospice, was opened in 1996 with ROBIN HOUSE opening in 2005. The hospices are purpose-built 'home from home' providing accommodation for eight families each from across Scotland at any one time. It is a place where families can relax, recharge their batteries and have fun with their children. Expert care is on hand to help them make the most of each day and live life to the full. Contact Rachel House on 01577 865 777, Kinross, KY13 8FX or Robin House 01389 722 055 Balloch, G83 8LX. For some families, coming to Rachel House or Robin House is just what they need, but others prefer us to go to them and help out in the family home. CHAS at Home doesn’t replace your local services-in fact one of the things we can do is help you to get all the support you need within your local community-but if there’s a gap in care, or you need some extra help because of a change in your child’s condition or family circumstances, then that’s where we can step in. For CHAS AT HOME contact 01577 865 777.
