share the care
Being diagnosed with a life threatening illness is not the end of the world. It is the beginning of a new chapter in your life, a chapter which Hospice can make better for you!
WHO WE ARE
Hospice is a life-enhancing support system, which promotes quality of life, dignity in death and support in bereavement, subscribing to the philosophy of Palliative Care which represents a special way of caring for patients where cure is no longer likely.
Camdeboo Hospice fills a gap in health services by providing a holistic home-based palliative care service to patients and their families living with life-limiting illnesses in our semi-rural Eastern Cape town Graaff-Reinet. The Nursing Services Manager travels each month to oversee the care of the patients and to monitor and support the staff based there.
To ensure the best quality of life possible for patients and their families affected by life-threatening illnesses.
Camdeboo Hospice provides holistic palliative care to patients and their families affected by life-threatening illnesses, through home-based care, support, and referrals to relevant partner organizations.
