ABOUT FWC HOSPICE

We believe that life is a precious and fragile journey of growth and development; and although death may be a time of sadness and separation, dying is a part of life’s journey that can be embraced with love and dignity.

Our History

FWC Hospice & Care Centre initially started to care for HIV/Aids patients in 1991 in a rented building in Hursthill, assisting government with the HIV/Aids pandemic. In 2001, we purchased the Little Gate Shopping Centre on auction and renovated and moved into it in 2009, where we are currently situated.  We also extended our services to palliative, frail and hospice care.
