Quality Palliative Care for All

In 1993 a voluntary association known as Centurion Hospice Association was purposed to establish and provide a Hospice Program of Care in accordance with the Standards of Care of the Hospice Palliative Care Association of South Africa (HPCA) in the Centurion, Laudium, Midrand and Fourways areas.

The HPCA of South Africa was founded in 1987 as a membership organisation for South African Hospices, primarily to share best practices amongst hospices, and to support the development of a hospice care movement in South Africa that is effective in providing supportive care to communities in need.

Palliative care is available to all persons diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, and gives people the opportunity to discuss their fears and anxieties about the end of their lives.

Our palliative care team consists of professional nurses, social workers, and medical practitioners that can help allay unrealistic fears, and will work with the person to control problems that may be realistic fears, such as pain and symptom control.  Palliative care includes bereavement services, as well as AIDS/HIV and TB counselling.

Being a Public Benefit Organisation, Centurion Hospice is required to conduct its activities in a non-profit manner and with noble or benevolent intent.  Registration with the NPO Directorate of the Department of Welfare safeguards standards of governance, and increase accountability and transparency to lift public and donor confidence.
