Registered Charity Number: No.SC023571
Pilgrim Care is a local charity whose primary aim is to care for elderly residents of St Andrews and its environs.
This ministry is conducted in cooperation with Parish Nursing Ministries(UK), a national charity. Pilgrim Care St Andrews' Parish Nurse serves the elderly of St Andrews and wider district and brings a wealth of professional experience to her work.
Based in the local church community, parish nurses support people towards whole person healthcare. Whether it’s simply giving moral support during a medical crisis – giving general health advice – “signposting” people to various support or medical services – praying for people – clarifying medical procedures or issues, etc – or simply listening (which they do an awful lot of!) - they focus on the person, rather than just a specific medical condition.
