Hospice Emanuel

Hospice Emanuel is a charitable organisation that provides specialised palliative care services to those who have been diagnosed with advanced cancer. This care extends to their families with the aim of bringing help and comfort at such a difficult time. Hospice services are offered free of charge without discrimination to adults and children from the Oradea district of Romania.

Most hospice patients want to be cared for at home, in a familiar environment where they feel safe, surrounded by family and loved ones. It is usually preferred by the patient’s family as well. The Hospice provides palliative care services within the home.

The hospice was established in 1996 under the supervision of Marinela Rotariu, Executive Director, a graduate of Emanuel Christian University. It is Marinela’s desire and prayer “that beside easing their pain we would be able through our Christianity to bring the love of God and His salvation in every house where we visit those who are suffering.”

They seek to guide local health workers by promoting palliative care principles among professionals working in the health system and also among the general public. There are advanced plans in place to build a hospice patient care unit in Oradea that will better serve those who are in great need of care.

Slavic Gospel Association is committed to help finance equipment and running costs. The Mission has already partially financed the purchase of a syringe driver that directly administers pain relief to hospice patients.
