For Patients

Hospice Malta is an NGO (VO/0062) providing free of charge patient-centered palliative care for patients suffering from cancer, motor neuron disease and other serious illnesses including cardiac, respiratory, renal and liver diseases. The services target the relief of pain and other physical symptoms, as well as emotional, psycho-social, and spiritual issues. Hospice also supports the patients’ families. Bereavement support is also an integral part of the care provided. The multidisciplinary approach to co-ordination of care assists patients and families in understanding and regaining control over their care and in receiving further care in the setting most appropriate to their needs and resources, be it at home, hospital or nursing home.
