What is Boland Hospice Care and who is it for...
Boland Hospice is about you and your health. It was founded on the need for traditional care for those with end of life care needs. Boland Hospice has evolved since it cared for its first patient in 2006.
Today Boland Hospice focus areas are:
Palliative care for those living with a life threatening illness
Rehabilitative supportive care
Chronic disease management (HIV; TB; hypertension; diabetes and other lifestyle influenced conditions) which includes treatment support
Health education to promote wellness and prevent disease
Early childhood health care
Family support and respite care
This care is provided through three services
Intermediate Care Facility: Ward in Worcester and Ceres providing 24 hour care
Home Based Care: Community Care Workers providing care Monday to Friday
Supportive Lay Counselling: Facility Based Counsellors seconded to the Department of Health in their facilities
We provide our services in the areas of Breede Valley (Rawsonville, Worcester, De Doorns and Touws River) and in Witzenberg (Ceres, Tulbagh, Wolsley and Prince Alfred Hamlet). Our services in Witzenberg run under the name of Zikhanye Community Services.
As an organization we strive to manage and provide care based on the following values:
Care: We work from our hearts
Competency: Having the knowledge and skills to do our jobs and stay up to date.
Accountability: Taking responsibility for our actions and being able to explain “why”
Integrity: Honest to ourselves and others in what we say and do
Respect: Honouring the differences in each other
Responsiveness: Swift reaction to patient, partners and organizational needs
