The RMF and the Paliaclinic Foundation are renewing their collaboration to support socioeconomically vulnerable patients through their final stage of life, so that they are able to face the process with dignity.

300 people and their families will benefit this year 2020 from the Home care programme for patients with social needs at the final stage of life this year. For the eighth consecutive year, the Ramon Molinas Foundation and the Paliaclinic Foundation have renewed their collaboration to care for and accompany socioeconomically vulnerable patients in their final stage of life, so that they are able to confront the process with dignity and in their own home.

The initiative, which plans to provide 5.000 care resources throughout 2020, provides support to patients and their families so that they are able to face the final stage of life and their own death with dignity, with as little suffering as possible, in the place of their choice and with the people they love. The Support and home care programme for patients with social needs at the final stage of life provides assistive devices, home care, art therapy, music therapy and companionship to people with terminal illness, resources that come from different areas of the public health care system of the Catalan Health Institute (ICS) over a limited period.

The programme provides help quickly, aiming to empower families and strengthen their abilities as caregivers, reduce the emotional suffering of patients and their families, and expand social support networks.
