We are a non-profit foundation that provides specialized care for people with cancer and other advanced illnesses, and support for their family. All our care is completely free of charge.
We care through the philosophy of palliative care, field in which we have acquired a great experience and competence, and from which we make our special kind of caring true. Not only do we treat the physical side of the illness, we also care for the psychological, social and spiritual level. This is to say, we work so that patients feel like people until the last moment.
Our activity began in 1992 thanks to the work and commitment of Joan Hunt. Born in England and living on the Costa del Sol, after losing her husband to cancer, she decided to dedicate her life to helping other people in her situation. That is why she founded CUDECA.
Today, we continue to offer our care completely free of charge to all those who need us. We know that we cannot add more days to the life of patients, but we do care to add life to their days.
Every year, we assist more than 1,400 people and, since 1992, we have cared for more than 15,000 patients with our Multidisciplinary Home Care Programmes, Day Unit, Hospitalization Unit, Rehabilitation, Psychosocial Program, Counseling and Outpatient Consultation. Our teams of doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers and physiotherapists care for every aspect of the patient’s care, respecting their wishes and preferences. All our care is professional and free.
