Our patients are transported to hospitals and clinics on a daily basis for check- ups and medical management of their condition. Doctors from Red Cross Children’s Hospital and Tygerberg Hospital also visit the Home on a bi-monthly rotational basis and assist us with medical concerns regarding the patients.

Students from both overseas and local universities / colleges in physiotherapy, occupational and speech therapy, social work and nursing are placed here for practical training. Final year medical students from UCT do a palliative care elective at the Home.

Our approach is child centered and we subscribe to the rights of the child as contained in the UNCRC. We are guided in all our actions and decisions by the “Best Interest of the Child”.
