For those who suffer with pain and other symptoms of life-limiting illness, The Shepherd’s Hospice is here to help.
We provide integrated outpatient services, homecare and inpatient hospice care in the Western Area of Sierra Leone.
These different forms of care overlap and work together to ensure that our patients’ needs are met at every phase of their illness.
Monday to Friday, 9am-2pm
We see patients regularly for review of their medical problems or nursing needs e.g. wound care.
We provide Medical Consult and Nursing Care at home as well as Phone Support for people who have serious illness but are too weak to travel, or who are unable to enrol in inpatient hospice.
We cover the areas between Freetown, Waterloo and Tombo
24-hour symptom management
Suitable for patients suffering severe symptoms which require intensive palliative care e.g. pain, difficulty breathing (dyspnoea), nausea, and end-of-life symptoms which their families cannot manage at home.
- Naturally ventilated 3-bed wards
- Wheelchair accessible
- Patient Meals Provided
- Caregiver training before discharge
As we focus on symptom relief and managing pain, we are not an acute medical facility.
For emergency medical or surgical treatment, please send your loved one to the nearest suitable acute hospital (Adventist Health Systems at Waterloo, China-Sierra Leone Friendship Hospital at Jui, Rokupa Government Hospital, or Connaught Hospital)
