New look and name for Hospice Malta
The Malta Hospice Movement has gone for a new look and name along with new services offered to patients nearing the end of their life.
The new logo takes the traditional sunflower and gives it a fresh twist, while the name has been shortened to Hospice Malta.
“We are confident such an upgrade better portrays our image and vision, as we expand our service to better meet the community’s needs and requirements,” Hospice Malta said in a statement.
The movement has for years been offering end-of-life care to people suffering from terminal cancer or motor neurone disease, and as of this month will be offering services to patients with cardiac illness.
In May, the movement will be embarking on its annual awareness month and the sunflower campaign, in which everyone is invited to help out.
Hospice offers specialised medical, nursing and therapeutic services, control of pain and other symptoms, emotional, social and spiritual support to patient and family, loan of specialised equipment and bereavement support for the family. All services are free and provided by professional staff.
These services include a Hospital Palliative Care Team at Mater Dei Hospital and a clinic in Gozo’s General Hospital.
Donations can be sent by mail or in person to: Hospice Malta, 39, Good Shepherd Avenue, Balzan BZN 1623. Call 2144 0085.
Nobody is authorised to collect money door to door on behalf of Hospice.
