Comprehensive Cancer Center Freiburg - CCCF

Home Care / Palliative Care Team SPES

Care for the critically ill at their own homes

We are there for you!

After long stays at the hospital, critically ill tumor patients generally wish to be able to return home.
Home care helps you and your loved ones to take this step.

We are qualified nurses and have additional training in oncology, specialized palliative care, and pain therapy.

We are part of the Palliative Care Team SPES and are the specialized outpatient palliative care (SAPV) provider at the Medical Center – University of Freiburg, assigned for organizational purposes to the Department of Palliative Care (in German). In addition to the home care team, a coordinator and a senior physician are also on duty for our patients.

We help you to plan the transition from hospital to home – if necessary and if you so desire, until the end of your life.
