Our Palliative Care Services

Nairobi Hospice is a program of care for those patients with life limiting illness and their families. Hospice ensures that the terminally ill patients are cared for through a holistic approach in that:

  1. They are physically tendered where pain and other distressing symptoms are controlled.
  2. Psychological and spiritual care for patients is provided so that they  may come with into terms with and prepare for their own death as fully as they can.
  3. A support system is in place to help patients live as actively and creatively as possible until death, thereby promoting autonomy, personal integrity and personal esteem.
  4. patients are cared for in a home setting in which close friends and family are counseled and trained to be care givers.
  5.  The hospice team combines consultative and “hands-on” in the provision of this service.
