At HOSPICE, we believe that palliative care is a human right.
Palliative care aims to improve the quality of life for patients and their families when they are confronted with the problems of an incurable illness. This is achieved through medical care for the patient, social support, psycho-emotional and spiritual counselling for the patient and his family.
WE CHANGE THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO LIVE WITH AN INCURABLE ILLNESS, THROUGH CARE AND COMPASSION, OFFERED UNCONDITIONALLY, WITH THE PURPOSE OF GIVING DIGNITY AND HOPE.
Our vision is that in Romania, all patients with an incurable illness benefit from adequate palliative care services at the right time, so that they can live with dignity every moment with their loved ones.
We care with professionalism and dedication the children and adults living with an incurable illness, by offering specialized services to them and their families. We develop palliative care at a national and international level by information, education, advocacy and improvement of legislation.
