#mehrRaum CS Hospiz Wien / #mehrRaum CS Hospiz Kalksburg In 2021 the urgently needed new construction of the hospice extension in the CS Kalksburg is due. Hospice is more than a place; hospice is an attitude – the quality of life in all dimensions of life is realized until the end. People with dementia have special requirements at the end of their lives. For this reason, CS Caritas Socialis is expanding hospice care and support. The new CS Kalksburg takes into account the hospice requirements of people with dementia and enables them to say goodbye to this world as painlessly as possible. There will be family and single rooms instead of twin rooms, a specialized hospice oasis, a farewell room, a wellness bathroom and much more. „Each auctioned work of art makes a decisive contribution to creating more space for people with dementia in the last days and weeks of life“, says Mag. Sabina Dirnberger-Meixner, Head of Fundraising at the CS Caritas Socialis Private Foundation. Detailed information on the construction https://www.cs.at/mehrraumkalksburg
