For patients in need of palliative care who are not bed ridden, the HE Care Center is open to them as a walk-in clinic one day a week where we offer medication administration, support group, lunch and coffee ceremony.

 

 

Bereavement: For our patients who die, we offer counseling to the family members and a small financial gift according to Ethiopian custom.
