The Children's Hospice in Dusseldorf exists since 2004 and is a home for incurable and life-limiting ill children and their families. We support 260 affected families from the region on their way and offer them the support and help they need in our home and beyond. With the possibility of a limited-period intake of the affected child, their parents and sisters, we would like to complement the care and maintenance at home.
Due to the intensive care of the child concerned, the relief of the parents comes too short and and the siblings must defer their own needs for attention and recognition.
In a steady Children's hospice, the parents can take out for a limited time from the care, while the children are supervised by experienced child and paediatric nurses of the hospice.
Up to 8 children and their families may be temporarily hospitalized and cared for in our house. Our motto: "Do not give life more days, but the days of life"
We offfer special programms for the siblings and parents e.g. siblings-weekend, mother-weekend, father-weekend and many more.
The Children's Hospice finances itself to 75% from donations, 25% of the costs are paid by the health and nursing care insurance. Sisters, parents and grandparents of the affected child are always accompanied with us free of charge and are accompanied when required round-the-clock psychosocially.
