About the department

The department of geriatrics and palliative medicine at Academic Regio Hospital Pinneberg provides care for old and terminally ill people. The goal is to alleviate symptoms such as shortness of breath, pain or weakness to maintain the best quality of life for patients for as long as possible. Doctors keep an eye on the symptoms and take holistic care of the needs of both patients and their families. The department specialists, together with nurses, psychotherapists, speech therapists and physiotherapists, will select an individual treatment package to improve symptom management and maintain the ability to carry out daily activities.

The medical team can offer you the best possible care and support in a modern palliative care ward if healing no longer is possible. High-qualified therapists have extensive competence and experience in anaesthesia, emergency and intensive care medicine, and infectiology and hygiene.
