Home Hospice

It is performed through preventing and bringing relief in suffering by early detection, comprehensive diagnosis and treatment including pain killing, dyspnoea and other somatic symptoms. It also comes up with solution of various psycho-social and spiritual problems. The last, but not least is the support during disease and in the time of bereavement.


Home hospice staff render services of palliative-hospice care to patients in terminal condition, with cancer and other non-malignant diseases.
