THE ORGANISATION:

Centurion Hospice is located in Lyttelton, Centurion and serves the communities of Centurion, Midrand, Laudium, Olievenhoutbosch and surrounding areas.  We provide palliative care including symptom and pain management, grief and bereavement support through a team of professionally qualified nurses and social workers.

Nobody, irrespective of race, religion or economic standing will be turned away.

Our Mission: 

To create a haven of peace by promoting

• quality of life;

• dignity in death, and

• support in bereavement by following a holistic approach that incorporates physical, social and spiritual needs

History

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.

Hospice palliative care is available to ALL persons diagnosed with a life-threatening illness irrespective of their race, religion or their ability to pay.  Holistic care means that professional nursing staff and social workers take into account the needs of the family in relation to grief and bereavement after the passing of the patient.

Our palliative care team consists of professional nurses, social workers, and medical practitioners that work together closely to ensure quality of life, dignity in death and support in bereavement.   The focus is on pain and symptom control and in-patient care is arranged through Centurion Hospice “partner” medical facilities.

Funding

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.
