A- About Josaab
Josaab Foundation is unique and the first organization providing hospice services (mobile and stationary hospice) free of charge for terminally-ill patients in Egypt.
Josaab Mission statement
Josaab mission is providing care and preserving the dignity of terminally-ill patients and their families through hospice services. This includes social, psychological, nursing and financial support offered free of charge by a trained multi-disciplinary team.
Josaab provides mobile and stationary hospice services
Hospice services provided at the patient's home are called mobile hospice services which are provided free of charge to the patients regardless of their socio- economic status.
Josaab stationary hospice is a place for those terminally-ill patients who have no one to take care of them. The stationary hospice building is finished and is located near the Cairo- Ismailia road, behind the International Medical Center.
Josaab Hospice services include:
Josaab Foundation provides social support to the terminally-ill patients and their families. Some of those patients feel isolated, desperate and fearful, as a result of increasing mental and physical burden. Josaab team members address these feelings during regular visits through active listening and effective communication. The patient finds comfort in knowing that there are those who understand, care and listen to him/her.
The suffering of the terminally ill patient can be psychological and extends to all members of his/her family, so Josaab team includes well trained and qualified psychologists to deal with such cases and their families.
Terminally-ill patients sometimes require installing IV solutions and fluids at home. They might have deep wounds that need constant dressing and/or need to receive IM injections. Josaab trained nurses are highly qualified individuals that provide optimal nursing services to terminal patients at their premises.
Some patients' financial resources are drained by their illness, and they are unable to live with dignity. After conclusive studies of the patients' condition, Josaab offers financial support in different ways to enable them to live with dignity.
Josaab helps the patients and their families to finish official documents and some pending legal issues.
