CARE HOSPICE: FIRST CHOICE IN CHALLENGING TIMES
Margarita Krasteva, manager, on the mission to provide life in dignity to patients and their relatives
Care Hospice was created in 2018, to provide care and life in dignity to the elderly, the gravely ill and sufferers of trauma, to people who need recovery or maintenance therapy in a medical facility. The hospice is dedicated to the mission to improve quality of life in all its aspects, and to cater to the individual requirements of each patient.
The goal is that everyone who needs hospital care and supervision from medical professionals to be taken care of in the best and highest quality way in an outstanding environment. The team chose the name Care, because timely and right care, combined with a cosy atmosphere, is a prerequisite for improvement of the patient's health.
The hospice provides 24-hour supervision, an incredibly high quality of life, professional medical care, excellent individual care and patient support in accordance with the rules of good medical practice. We talked to Margarita Krasteva, manager of Care Hospice, to learn more.
The Covid-19 pandemic was a particular challenge to hospices. How did you overcome it?
Indeed, the pandemic was a serious challenge for everyone: for us, the staff, and for the patients and their families. We succeeded in finding a balance that would suit our patients and their relatives, and we did not separate them as we wanted to avoid them feeling isolated.
These patients need to feel that their relatives are close, and during the pandemic the opposite happened. In this case, social distancing does not heal or protect, it kills. This was the biggest challenge for us. We have always worked in line with the strictest rules for disinfection and hygiene – before, during and after the pandemic.
Another challenge was PPE and disinfectants supply, as essentials suddenly disappeared from the market. But we overcame this, too. We continue to take care of our patients and we look forward.
How, as a manager, do you achieve the ambitious goal of Care Hospice to provide life in dignity to your patients?
With a lot of struggle. Our work is very dynamic and asks for a significant and diverse know how. On a daily basis, I make decisions concerning our patients, guided by their current condition.
For example, if some tests have to be done, I call consultants – a neurologist, a cardiologist, an urologist or other. I meet both relatives of current patients and ones who seek where to place their loved ones. Each day is a challenge. And I prefer action to talking. I constantly fight for consistent and continuous improvement in the care for our patients (improving their quality of life according to their individual needs).
The hospice has worked and won trust since 2018. What does it look like in your dreams in 2028?
I hope that we will be healthy and in 2028 will remain the first choice for a medical facility to patients, and first choice for care for the patient, that offers high-quality and effective medical care and help.
