Overview

The Past

This non-political, non-profit organization was started in year 2000 in H. M. Hospital with 4 beds. It was officially registered with the Chief District Officer's office in Kathmandu as a Trust. We had to increase the bed to six due to the increase demand within the first six month. We paid a subsidized rate for the bed which was sponsored by various individuals. After nearly 18 months, and having cared for 85 patients, we thought that these patients required a home like atmosphere and a team of dedicated nurses just to take care of terminally ill patients.

The Present

With the view of giving specialized Hospice care alone, we built an independent building with a home like atmosphere and staffed with dedicated nursing staff. This lies in a peaceful area in Lagankhel, but near enough for basic facilities, like transport and food.

Hospice Nepal provides one general cabin with six beds and two cabins for single or double occupancies. The general beds are free and includes a storage cum bed for one visitor and a common bathrooms. The cabins have attached bathroom and a storage cum bed for visitors. We take minimum charge for the cabins and this money also goes to the Hospice. All rooms have fans and heaters for summer and winter. Other facilities for patients are a Television, radio cassette player, games and a beautiful garden for the patients and their family. There is even a place for cooking food if one wishes and we have provided a kerosene stove.

The patients are cared by a dedicated staff twenty-four hours a day. A doctor visits once a day for consultation. These are all free for all patients. We also have all the special medicines required for these patients.

The Future

Our aim in the future is to make 25 bedded Hospice surrounded by green garden. The patients should be able to take a walk in the garden and relax with nature. Our ultimate goal is to make the patient and their relatives as comfortable as possible by medication for physical comfort, and also provide spiritual and mental comfort in a peaceful, homelike atmosphere. This is Hospice.

Next to the building would be a guest-house for the relatives of patient so that they can also live comfortably while they take care of the patient. For the patient and their relatives, we will be building a meditation hall, a small temple, a small stupa etc. Our ultimate goal is to help the patient and their relatives physically, mentally, and spiritually.

We are already moving towards our aim by designing the future building by a very well known architect, Mr. Rajesh Shrestha of Vastukala.

Rest, including the land and the building will slowly evolve and this is where you can play a major role by helping us in any way you can. This would mean instead of depending on government for everything, we hope to provide a state of art Hospice by ourselves with our own effort.
