At present the care we offer in Serbia is through home visits. We are building a new purpose-built hospice in Belgrade which will greatly increase the services offered and the number of cancer sufferers helped.

                        

Our multi-disciplinary care team includes doctors, nurses, a social worker, a spiritual co-ordinator and in some cases a psychologist or a cleric.

Services provided in the year from November 2016 to November 2017 - some figures

  • 800 patients and family members benefitted from BELhospice services
  • 3,697 consultations  
  • 1,767 home care visits
  • 140 volunteer visits made to patients 

43% of the cost of home care services were covered by a grant from the Norwegian Government and by funding from Hospices of Hope.

BELhospice developed a new home care programme based on international standards which led to its home care service being licensed and recognised by the government in 2017. This will allow it to apply for local government funding allocated to home care provision.
