In answer to the cry of the spirit
Hospice says we will be here
We will be here with you in your living
and in your dying.
We will free you from pain
and give you the freedom to find your own meaning in your life-
your way.

We will comfort you and those you love -
not always with words,
often with a touch or a glance.
We will bring you hope -
not for tomorrow, but for this day.
We will not leave you.
We will be here.

Do you have a moment or two to spare?

Do you want to give back to the community in a small way?

SOUTH COAST HOSPICE needs your support.

Many hands make light work. A bunch of flowers, a container of soup, an hour or two, just once or twice a year.

Please contact Shamila at shamila@schospice.co.za or

Joy at media@schospice.co.za

Here's how you can help :

  • Donate a bouquet of flowers to the inpatient unit.

  • Provide 1 or 2 cooked meals for patients, such as chicken/veg soups and stews, that can be frozen, and jellies and custards. Fresh fruit and vegetables would also be appreciated.

  • Host visitors to the inpatient unit over weekends (direct visitors from the day care lounge to the unit, make tea, etc) This is a vital care for patients’ loved ones.

  • Assist at our charity shops.

  • Assist at fundraising events.
