Professional care & compassionate support
When a loved one is diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, they often return home from hospital to families that aren’t equipped with the knowledge and resources to provide appropriate care.
Our Hospice Plett programme provides holistic palliative care and support to patients that have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, in the comfort of their own home. Our team of trained Professional Nurses, Social Worker and carers strive to improve the quality of life of each patient and provide them with as much comfort and dignity as possible. We work in full co-operation with the patient’s doctor, specialist or clinic to provide pain and symptom control. Care and support is also extended to the patient’s family, and includes bereavement care and support to children affected by the circumstances.
This service is offered free of charge for those with medical aids that cover home-based care. We have professional nurses on call 24/7 who will assist patients and families over the phone after office hours and over weekends.
