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.
Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death. Patients are assisted and encouraged to live full and comfortable lives through the management of pain and symptom control.
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.
