Even when conventional medicine can offer no more, a thoughtful deed can give patients something worth living for.
Friends of ANCHOR’s Making Memories fund is an initiative specifically for use by the family or clinical team of a patient who is receiving end of life care, to create a special experience for that person.
Following a successful application, the charity will fund and organise the memory, using carefully selected suppliers and vendors. We will take care of all organisational elements of the memory you would like to create, for a stress-free and special occasion for your loved one.
Applications are accepted for oncology and haematology patients residing in the North-east of Scotland. Memories can be arranged in the hospital setting for inpatients, or outwith for those who are able to be at home.
Hospital-based memories may include events such as a games night, pamper day, movie night or tea party. The fund can also be used to support birthday parties, weddings, blessings or other special occasions within the hospital setting.
Memories that could be supported outwith the hospital may be once-in-a-lifetime experiences including bucket list challenges or VIP hospitality at sports games, concerts or theatre shows. While Covid-19 restrictions remain in place, we remain committed to creating safe memories for patients, and these can be organised in the comfort of a patient’s own home or a private outdoor space.
Applications will be reviewed by a member of the patient’s clinical team before they can be approved. To request an application, please fill out the form below and our Wellbeing Team will be in touch with you soon. Alternatively, please phone 01224 859222 to speak to a member of the team.
