Few Portuguese have the possibility of having palliative care at home because in Portugal there are not enough teams to provide such care at home. In the absence of solutions capable of meeting the challenges faced by these patients and their families, we have created “Coop LInQUE – Palliative Care at Home”. and soon we shall have our first Palliative Care team working in Lisbon.
Palliative Care is a response to the needs of patients suffering from advanced, incurable and progressive disease, and / or in intense suffering, and are mainly intended to ensure the best quality of life to the patient and his family. Palliative Care is centred in the patient physical, psychosocial and spiritual needs and not only in the diagnosis or prognosis, going far beyond the last moments of life.
We will continue to work with the utmost dedication to this project, which we launched in September 2014.At this stage we need your help to buy the first batch of medical equipment and clinical supplies.
Budget and due dates
We established collaboration agreements with various entities, particularly with Amara Association and the Parish and Social Center of St. George of Arroios in Lisbon, where is our operational headquarters.
In the last months, with enthusiasm and dedication, we have invested our time, our knowledge and our savings in Coop LInQUE.
Now we need your support.
BECAUSE IN PALLIATIVE CARE, TIME MATTERS
