Serious illness and hospitalisation can be a challenging and traumatic experience, especially when it has to be faced without any resources or support. Thanks to HospiVision, people in such situations have access to a compassionate friend who can comfort and counsel them, their family members and their caregivers as they undertake their journey though illness. HospiVision does this by providing spiritual, emotional, social and physical care to patients in hospital, while at the same time empowering people through skills development, and supporting children infected or affected by AIDS. We at HospiVision assist people as they regain their humanity, dignity and integrity, despite their health situation. Illness impacts both on the individual and those around them, so we want to help people get their lives back.
