What we do

Acompalia supports terminally ill patients and their families in Granada province and along the Costa Tropical in southern Spain. It provides free of charge services that help terminally ill patients to live each remaining day as fully as possible.

Research shows that:

  • Most of us would prefer to die at home or in sympathetic surroundings, with our families close by.
  • We want effective pain relief and appropriate but non-intrusive medical care.
  • We all hope, and even expect, that our loved ones will be supported – emotionally and practically – during and after our final days.

Acompalia is responding to these needs, helping terminally ill patients and their families mostly thanks to Helpline and Acompanion services.
