Welcome to "The Friends' Hospice Paphos"

Our Mission is to provide Palliative Care for those in the Paphos District who have a life-limiting illness and a where cure is no longer possible.

Show Your Love

Volunteers are essential for everything we do. Some assist patients directly in our Inpatient Unit in the Hospice. Others help to raise the €500,000 needed each year to keep the Hospice running. They do this by working in our shops, being part of our fundraising group or by organising their own charity events.

Donations

Donations in any form are always gratefully received. A donation is a gift given by physical or legal persons, typically for charitable purposes and/or to benefit a cause. A donation may take various forms, including cash offering, services, new or used goods including clothing, toys, food, and vehicles.

Items offered for sale include ladies, gents and children’s clothes, books, CDs, household items, linens, bric-a-brac and much more. Furniture is available at our larger Kato Paphos, Chloraka and Polis shops. We also have a range of seasonal products.

The Friends' Hospice Paphos Services

The Hospice is not the building but the concept of total care of the patient with a life-limiting illness. That care is medical, nursing, physical, emotional and spiritual and encompasses not only the patient but also the family who require support in managing their relative’s illness. To meet all these needs, patients are assessed and the care tailored to their specific requirements. The care is provided by a multidisciplinary team in order to meet the wide needs of patients with advanced disease.

Symptom control

Symptom control in the late stages of diseases such as cancer, symptoms such as pain, vomiting or breathlessness can be very distressing and sometimes difficult to control at home. In the Hospice, these symptoms can be assessed by staff experienced in dealing with advanced disease and a number of therapies used to alleviate them. Medication can be assessed by the specialist team and alterations monitored for effectiveness.

Respite Care

Respite Care caring for somebody with a life-limiting illness is both physically and emotionally exhausting. There are times when a carer needs a short break from the task of caring full-time either to recharge their batteries or because the carer requires care himself. Under these circumstances, patients can be admitted to the Hospice for an agreed period of time. Sometimes the carer will continue to provide care for the patient

Terminal Care

Terminal Care – the function of the Hospice in this context is to provide the patient and family with care which is compassionate, dignified and professional. The care extended to the patient is designed to relieve distress physically and emotionally in calm and peaceful surroundings. The support for the family is an equally important part of this type of care and the presence of experienced and professional staff can help to ease the distress at this time. ..

Please help us to help others with donating anything you can.
