St Luke's Combined Hospices

St Luke’s Combined Hospices is a leading palliative care hospice registered as a Not for Profit (NPC), Public Benefit Organization (PBO). Palliative Care, or often called end-of-life care, begins at the point of diagnosis of a terminal illness.

Founded in 1980, St Luke’s Combined Hospices transcends conventional in-patient care to offer decentralised palliative care services in significantly marginalised communities within the greater precinct of Cape Town, South Africa. This outreach was achieved in the establishment of our day-hospices. Patients are tended to at our six day hospices which are community-based hubs for medical, psychosocial, and spiritual intervention. These day hospices have an overarching aim of providing care and support for terminally ill patients within their own culture and home environment.

With our six day hospices, our 2 in-patient units (10-bed IPU at Kenilworth, and 10-bed Multi Drug Resistant TB unit at Khayalitsha), and our Home Based Care programme in Khayalitsha,  St Luke’s Combined Hospices cares for, on average, 700 patients daily. The Inter-Disciplinary Team provides medical, psycho-social, spiritual and bereavement services to the patients and their families at our many well positioned community-based hubs, and in the comfort of our patients’ homes. For us at St Luke’s Combined Hospices the patient and their family remain our core focus. We believe that while there may be a limit to cure, there is no limit to care.
