Common Misconceptions

Hospice is not a ‘place’. It is the offer of specialised palliative care for those facing a life-limiting illness, their families and their carers.

There is a common belief that a Hospice is where patients go to die. That is not true. Hospice care is not only for people with a life limiting illness who have a few weeks or days left to live. We offer support and care for a patient from the time of diagnosis and we recommend contacting Hospice for support sooner rather than later.

Hospice East Rand covers the entire East Rand/Ekurhuleni region – not only Benoni. Areas within the East Rand/Ekurhuleni include Bedfordview, Benoni, Boksburg, Brakpan, Edenvale, Germiston, Heidelberg, Kempton Park, Nigel and Springs.

Hospice home-based care is available for people suffering from a variety of potentially life limiting illnesses and not only cancer.
