Sue Ryder provides incredible hospice and neurological care for people facing a frightening, life-changing diagnosis. It’s not just expert medical care we provide. It’s the emotional support and practical things we take care of too.
In Aberdeen, our purpose built neurological centre, Dee View Court, provides 24-hour specialist care for people who have life-changing conditions affecting the brain and nervous system, such as Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and brain acquired injuries.
Home to 22 people from across Aberdeenshire, residents at Dee View Court receive 24 hour specialist care whilst having the freedom to pursue their passions and interests. The expert team see the person not the condition, and they focus on what people can do, not what they can’t.
As Scotland’s only purpose-built neurological care centre, demand for a place at Dee View Court is high, and there is a waiting list of 10-15 people that never gets any shorter. And, with places rarely becoming available, we desperately need to expand to give more people the care and support they need and deserve.
To reach more people, we need to raise £3.9million to extend Dee View Court, build new specially adapted rooms and apartments, and give us the flexibility to care for a further 19 people.
It’s a big project, and one we cannot do alone. By taking part in the Great Aberdeen run in aid of Sue Ryder, not only are you helping raise funds to make our plans for Dee View Court a reality, but you are helping give someone a place to call their home and live the fullest life possible.
