Hospice offers a programme of specialized, palliative care to our patients with progressive, far advanced, incurable disease. We also offer support to their families. The majority of out-patients are visited in their homes by experienced, specially trained nursing staff.
We offer this service to communities in the Pretoria area (which includes Mamelodi). Please see the list of areas that we operate in. We are a non-profit organization and receive 95% of our funding from corporate donors, sponsorships, donations as well as income generated by our charity shops.
Hospice recognises dying as a normal process and neither hastens or postpones death. We recognise grief as a normal response to loss and support the families during the bereavement period. (Please read Myths about Hospice). Any patient (with their consent) with progressive, far advanced, incurable disease: Cancer, HIV/AIDS, end stage cardiac failure etc. can make use of our services.
