Care & Support
Acompalia supports terminally ill patients and their families in Granada 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 through its Helpline and Acompanion services.
Our Acompanion service provides trained, bilingual volunteers to accompany patients and family members to medical appointments and help later when nurses and doctors visit patients at home.
The Helpline provides practical support and a sympathetic ear for patients and their families when they need it most.
Acompalia is at your side from the early stages until the very end; it keeps you company and gives you helpful advice in these difficult times.
You need to be prepared for the end of life. Acompalia can help make sure that you get appropriate legal advice so that all the formalities are properly taken care of, and that your loved one’s wishes are respected.

Partners in Care
Many people who contact Acompalia are looking for private doctors, nurses and carers to help them through this difficult time. Acompalia does not directly employ medical or auxiliary staff but we are fortunate in having some wonderful people working alongside us. Please contact them direct if you are in need of private care.
Acompalia supports terminally ill patients and their families in Granada and along the Costa Tropical. Two vital services are already in place. As soon as we can, we plan to offer Palliative Care as the third pillar of our services. Until we turn this vision into a reality we’ve teamed with the Palliative Care Division of Motril’s Santa Ana hospital, enhancing their services.
