Tèarmann/Home from Home


This evening on BBC ALBA, Julie narrates a documentary which explores the work of the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland. They are the sole charity in the country who offer respite care children and youngsters with life threatening conditions. In Tèarmann/Home from Home we meet five families who depend on the hospice service for respite care and support.

This is a world where people aren’t afraid to talk about death, but prefer to focus on living life. The hospice staff and volunteers – from the housekeepers, to the chefs, to the nurses – all ensure that Rachel and Robin Houses provide a warm welcome and a home from home for families. Over 60 minutes, in a film which will make the audience both laugh and cry, we experience joy and sadness in Rachel and Robin Houses in an intimate portrayal of families coping with both life and death.

Tune in and watch the work this amazing charity does.
