Brief description of organisation

Children's Hospice in Wroclaw is the only HOME-BASED hospice in Lower Silesia province - our patients stay at home with their families, because home is the best and safest place for a sick child. We currently support more than two hundred and fifty children and their families on many levels. Doctors and nurses travel to our patients every day, they are on call around the clock, so that children and their families can feel safe.

Wrocław Hospice for Children was established in 2002 and has continuously been carrying out tasks related to the broadly defined palliative care ever since. The Foundation "Children's Hospice in Wroclaw” was established in 2007 with the purpose of collecting funds for Hospice activities. Since 2011 the Hospice has been an inseparable part of the Foundation as a legal entity. We take care of patients not only in the terminal stages of cancer, but also of children with all types of genetically determined neurological diseases, heart defects, children suffering from accident injuries or medical errors. Our main activities are: conducting home hospice for children (health care, nursing, psychological, social, rehabilitative and spiritual care), running an out-patient clinic for terminally and chronically ill children, running the center of social and vocational rehabilitation, managing perinatal hospice (for parents who choose to give birth to a terminally ill child), running volunteering service, education of children and youth oriented on volunteering, we cooperating with school and commercial volunteering.
