Hospice – Helping Hand Foundation

The Hungarian Hospice Foundation has been working since 1991. It has been looking after patients with the need for that kind of treatment with the hospice spirit and humane care.

In Mosonmagyaróvár we have been doing hospice treatment in patients' homes since 2009. Until 2014 in Mosonmagyaróvár and Jánossomorja and since 2014 in the whole district.

According to the spirit characterising the international hospice movement, we deal with easing the physical and mental suffering of incurable patients, primarily with tumours, who can only have symptomatic treatment. Our main prioroty is preservation of human dignity. In addition, we help    the closest relatives to bear the burdens of the disease and the mourning later on. In our view, this service has not only been chosen by us but we believe that it has chosen us as well.

We look after 25-50 patients a year. Obviously, institutional care is also needed besides home care so we have set an objective to create an in-patient hospice care. It can be realised with the support of the foundation with the hope for state aid.

The Hospice Helping Hand Foundation was registered in April 2016. Its main objective is to give financial support to the care of cancer patients who need palliative hospice care.

The Hospice House with 8 beds will be created in the building of the Parish of Magyaróvár at 2 Lotz Károly Street.

The reconstruction of the building as well as the operation of the service mean significant financial sacrifices.

The building was originally a kind of hospital, so with the hospice as a 'shelter' brings it back to its original activity. The spirit of the place, the closeness of the chapel and the cross, the determination of the relatives and the people involved and the patience of the patients can give strength to this difficult task.
