Hospice Casa Sperantei

We set up and registered the first Romanian hospice charity, Hospice Casa Sperantei ("Home of Hope"), in 1992. Through Hospice Casa Sperantei we introduced hospice care to Romania and Hospice Casa Sperantei is now the largest organisation in Romania providing free hospice care to adults and children. 

Hospice Casa Sperantei has two purpose- built hospices, one in Brasov and one in Bucharest. The hospices offer in-patient units, out-patient clinics, day-centres and home care teams. As well as receiving medical care, patients are helped with social services issues and counselling is provided. Hospices Casa Sperantei also opened a brand new respite and therapy centre for children in 2018, found in the beautiful countryside outside Bucharest. The land and buildings were donated to Hospice Casa Sperantei to be developed into a centre to care for children with life-limiting illnesses such as muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis. The facility will also support the children's families. 

Hospice Casa Sperantei has two teaching centres. The teaching centre in Brasov is named after Princess Diana in recognition of her support for Casa Sperantei. Princess Diana took a great interest in our work and made the first donation to the education centre.

We have clinics in Fagaras and Zarnesti which are more remote rural areas of Romania. The clinics provide home care services as many patients living in these areas have very limited access to medical care.

Hospice Casa Sperantei has been recognised as a Centre of Excellence for the provision of hospice care.   

Emanuel Hospice

We also support Emanuel Hospice in Oradea, northern Romania, through support with grants, funding and training.
