St Luke’s Combined Hospices provides specialised end of life medical and nursing care, known as palliative care, to people with life-limiting illnesses.

 Palliative care focuses on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a life-limiting illness with the goal of improving quality of life for patients and their family. We do this through professional home and in-ward nursing support, as well as providing physical, emotional, psychosocial and spiritual care and bereavement support throughout the greater Cape Town area.

St Luke’s cares for patients from all walks of life regardless of ethnic/religious affiliation or ability to pay - no matter how long or short the length of time the patient requires hospice care. Find out more on how to get hospice care.
