Rays of Hope Hospice Jinja team walks side by side with patients and their families during the illness. The care teams of clinicians and social workers provide counseling to patients and their families when they visit patients in their homes or at outreach centers once or twice a month. Many of the bedridden or housebound patients look forward to these visits which provide an opportunity for them to share their main distresses. If there are special legal issues such as making a will, we work with Uganda Law Society – Legal AID Project, whose lawyers and paralegals will assist the patient and family.
Counselling is a key component in all our interactions with our patients and their families.
