Hospice East Rand Services
Our Services – Equipment
As part of our holistic approach we offer the hire of equipment to assist with the quality of care for our patients with life-limiting illnesses. Equipment includes hospital beds, walkers, wheelchairs, commodes, medi mattresses, sheepskins etc. Should you require any equipment of this nature, arrangements can be made via your Hospice East Rand nursing sister.
For more information on our equipment hire please contact us on +27 11 422 1531.
Patients needing Hospice care can contact us themselves, via a family member, patient’s doctor, social workers or another appropriate person. The important thing to note is that the patient must want Hospice care and be aware that we have been approached. Patients can be registered by phoning the Intake Officer on 011 422 1531 between the hours of 09:00 am and 15:00 pm, Monday to Friday or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once intake documentation has been completed and the medical report from the patient’s doctor has been received, Hospice East Rand will evaluate the supplied information to ensure the patient meets the palliative care criteria for care after which a nursing sister will do an assessment visit.

Most medical aids cover care with Hospice and all accounts for care and medication are submitted to them for payment.
Non medical aid patients are charged a set fee at the end of each month but provision of our services is not dependent on the ability to pay.
