Please donate to our winter blanket drive - our communities need warm blankets this winter
In partnership with the Department of Health and funded by FM Trusts, CHoiCe Trust’s Palliative Care nurse, Jamela Tiva, works in the Greater Tzaneen sub-district area to provide palliative care services to patients who suffer from chronic or life-threatening illnesses. The programme has a holistic approach and focuses specifically on pain management for the patient as well as psychosocial, spiritual and emotional support to the patient and their family members. With a focus on cancer patients, CHoiCe Trust’s palliative nurse works directly with health facilities so that their care continues from the public health sector to their own households. Training family members for home-based care is part of our programmes initiative to ensure continuous comfort and support for the patient.
