HOSPICE

a dream come true


Having watched his father battle with cancer and seeing what kind of suffering this involved, an Englishman decided to help people in Romania similarly affected by an incurable illness. 24 years ago, Graham Perolls established HOSPICE Casa Sperantei in Brasov, introducing palliative care to Romania at a time when the care offered to patients with an incurable illness was almost non-existent. Palliative care aims to improve the quality of life of patients and their families affected by an incurable illness.

Since 1992 HOSPICE has brought comfort and hope to more than 20,000 children and adults suffering from an incurable illness. They have received professional care at the right moment and have been enabled to live every moment with dignity, alongside their loved ones.


FREE-OF-CHARGE

services


The organisation offers multi-disciplinary services including medical and nursing care for the patients and social, psycho-emotional and spiritual counselling for the patients and their families. The services are offered in in-patient units, out-patient clinics, in patients’ own homes, in day centers and in partner hospitals.

All the services offered by the charity to patients and their families are free-of-charge, whatever their social status, financial position or background.


HOSPICE

a centre of excellence


HOSPICE Casa Speranței is recognised as a Centre of Excellence and as a model in palliative care education, providing training for professionals from Romania and abroad.


FREE-OF-CHARGE

services


In its 24 years of existence the charity has developed continuously, reaching more and more beneficiaries. Currently HOSPICE Casa Sperantei is operating in 4 centres – Brasov, Fargaras, Zarnesti and Bucharest, employing over 220 people. More than 200 volunteers are actively helping the organisation, offering their skills and time.


HOSPICE

changes lives



Many of the children and adults cared for by the foundation cannot imagine facing their battle with the illness without the caring support of the HOSPICE staff.

HOSPICE is a home, a sanctuary and a symbol which reminds us all that we are not alone and that we can work together to provide normality, when the smallest and most simple things can take so much effort to attain.
