hospice 1000

The onset of CORONA Virus has heightened our awareness of the plight of people diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, and the numerous challenges patients and their  families are having to deal with on a daily basis. These may include loss of income, loss of future and loved ones, fear of dying alone, in isolation, or fear of dying unsupported and in pain.

Overstrand Hospice’s No end to Caring during Lockdown!

The safety and protection of our patients and families is of paramount importance to us. We remain committed to maintaining a high standard of care, while prioritising those of you who are experiencing severe or uncontrolled pain and other symptoms.
All new referrals will be attended to telephonically and support measures put in place to attend to our new patients’ needs.
We take into consideration that our patients are immuno-compromised, therefore will limit our visits to homes unless requested by you or a family member, or if a change in your condition requires further treatment or interventions.
Further inquiries may be addressed to Sr Esme Potgieter, Patient Care Manager, 082 200 4233, or Fran Tong, General Manager, 071 670 1618.

Approximately 50% of patients are referred to Overstrand Hospice by state hospitals and clinics. Most of these patients (and their families) are from the under-resourced areas across our communities and struggle to make ends meet, or attend to basic needs such as food and shelter.

Within the context of Hospice care, Christmas and New Year is often a complex, difficult and lonely time for the ill and their families.  In my years of direct support to patients, it never ceased to amaze me how people nearing the end of their lives, hold onto life.
