Many people wish to face the end of the road at home. In case of a serious illness, this is not always possible. The hospice via Luce gives gravely ill people the possibility to face the end with dignity and in a caring environment. The nursing care staff and physicians are available for the guests all around the clock.
The in-patient hospice Via Luce lies in an idyllic location on the outskirts of Villingen-Schwenningen. It has capacity for seven residents in single rooms with a large shower-bath. The large eat-in kitchen invites them to live in common.
"We can't add days to life, but we can add life to days." This phrase of Cicely Saunders is put into practice in the hospice. The days are filled with life by cooking, singing, laughing, playing, eating and reading together.
This is how a resident describes his feelings:
"There are many kinds of people. I can meet really great people here. For us sick people, they are like angels. They are always so nice with us. This moment, when they give so much love, is precious to us. I want to thank the whole team of the hospice for all the beautiful things, for this so varied world, which is so important for me and all others here in the hospice. It is a life up to the latest moment."
We are happy to contribute with our donations and help this institution to continue ensuring a so precious care.
