About Jasmine (Cayman HospiceCare)
Jasmine is a not-for-profit organisation committed to improving the lives of those affected by terminal illness and death, assuring long-term emotional, spiritual and general well-being to patients, their families and the bereaved.
Jasmine employs specialist nurses and caregivers, and has a team of trained patient-care volunteers who offer support to patients and their families. Supported by holistic care, additional services include counselling, therapeutic massage, fellowship opportunities, and bereavement support.
The Jasmine Villa is a purpose built facility which can accommodate four patients and their family members. The ‘Villa’ includes a meditation room, family room, kitchen and a multi-purpose community room providing space to offer support services for family members and caregivers. Services are aimed at treating pain and managing symptoms as well as improving the overall well-being of patients and their families. Anyone can refer a patient to Jasmine.
Jasmine costs more than CI$2,000 per day to operate and is 90% funded by donations.
Support from the community and volunteers are always needed and very welcome.
