Gaudir Hospice Club

Associació per a l'Acompanyament al Final de la Vida Hospice.cat starts the Gaudir Hospice Club season.

The main goal of GAUDIR HOSPICE club is having a space to enjoy events around the subject of the end of life process, where people can take part with their ideas, feelings and knowledge, having in mind the notion that death is a natural fact which is part of our life experience, in tune with the principles of hospices.

This club is a space where we can share and cooperate in everything necessary to tell the community about the need to bring hospices to our country, and so facing the end of life process in a more honourable, humane and respectful way.

This Gaudir Hospice Club is held at Galeria Bencini, a great place surrounded by art and paintings, the ideal atmosphere to share personal and professional creativity, sweetened by home-made cakes and a variety of teas.

Attendance confirmation is required through this form.

Come join us!

March 1st 2016

Last 24th of February 2016 the UPC (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya), through its programme UPC Reutilitza made a donation to our association Hospice.cat of a computer system to be used for the management of our entity and the preparation of activities and projects by our association.

The UPC Reutilitza programme is an initiative by the UPC with the aim of reutilize computer resources and systems which have been renewed at the university by students and volunteers. These units are donated to entities and programmes dealing with solidarity and social interests.

Thanks to this programme, systems and units which were destined to be electronic waste, become valuable resources for entities and social projects which demand them.

If you consider it a good initiative for its social and environmental usefulness, or you think it can be of interest to you, you can find more information at this link: http://reutilitza.upc.edu/
