Hospice East Rand will promote awareness of palliative care in Ekurhuleni during the week of May 6-13 which is Hospice Awareness Week.

Hospice East Rand is a community-based organisation whose mission is to provide high-quality, holistic and non-discriminatory care to patients with life-limiting diseases and their families.

Sister Sindisiwe Mdlalose, the patient care manager for Hospice East Rand, says: “When I joined Hospice I learnt about a different way of caring for patients. I learnt about the holistic approach, which is an approach that does not just focus on treating the patient, but also looks at their emotions, the family’s emotions and many more factors. Palliative care is a beautiful concept and it is one I am extremely passionate about.”

She feels strongly that the health department needs to be more open-minded about the impact Hospice and palliative care can make in South Africa’s health system.
