Rutherglen and Cambuslang residents have the chance to use a service provided by the Kilbryde Hospice.
Care @ Home offers additional support to people in South Lanarkshire with a life limiting illness.
This service allows them to remain cared for at home whilst working with other existing palliative care support services.
A hospice spokesman said: “We provide emotional and psychological support to help improve quality of life by providing specialist nurse support, complementary therapies and befriending. The nurse offers one to one support sessions and is a connection between the community and Kilbryde Hospice or other services.
“Complementary therapies can help promote feelings of well-being, relaxation, reduce anxiety and stress.
“Befrienders provide the opportunity for people to express themselves in a safe, comfortable environment. We enable people to gain a sense of control and confidence at a very difficult time in their lives.
“People are more at ease when you meet them in their own environment and this can allow the Care @ Home team to get an idea of the bigger picture and how the situation is affecting the whole family.”
For details, ask your specialist nurse/GP to use the new referral forms available from the hospice on 01355 202020 or by email at info@ kilbrydehospice.org.uk.
