Hospice & Palliative Care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problems associated with life-threatening illness through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual. (WHO)

For the individual this means: Volunteers and employees of the Caritas Hospice listen, help, give stability and security, ease pain and simply “are there”.
