The palliative home care services are offered free of charge, without any discrimination to the eligible patients (adults and children), by an interdisciplinary team of Christian professionals. The growing team consists of a doctor, nurses, social workers, a psychologist and a spiritual counsellor.
Since it was established in 1996, Emanuel Hospice has cared for more than 2,500 adults and children, enabling them to live the remainder of their life in comfort and dignity. When the hospice concept was first introduced in Romania there was no legislative framework or regulations for these desperately needed services, so TEN became the primary partner to support Marinela Rotariu during the early years of the hospice project. Marinela is the executive Director of Emanuel Hospice. She is married to Dan and they have two sons.
