Inland palliative care association hoping to recruit a nurse as team expands

  • The registered charity is dedicated to supporting and improving the quality of life for patients with advanced incurable illnesses

The palliative care organisation, Asociación Girasol, based in the north of the province of Malaga, is expanding its care team in the area.

The registered charity is dedicated to supporting and improving the quality of life for patients with advanced incurable illnesses, their families and carers, in the towns of Alameda, Fuente de Piedra, Humilladero and Mollina.

The organisation is now looking for a qualified nurse to join the network of professionals and volunteers who offer a wide range of free services.

These include advice and counselling for patients, carers and families, as well as companionship and transportation.

Meanwhile the association’s day hospice offers therapies, assessment and a confidential environment in which to discuss all concerns.

Training programmes are also organised for professionals, volunteers and carers and funds are raised through a charity market stall, among other initiatives.

Qualified English-speaking nurses with palliative care experience interested in joining the professional team, as well as anyone wanting to find out more about becoming a member or volunteer, are invited to contact info@asociaciongirasol.com or call 684 12 85 57 for further information.
