A warm welcome!
La Maison de Tara offers an alternative to hospitalisation for people nearing the end of life who are unable to stay at home but wish to spend their final days in a non-medicalised atmosphere surrounded by warmth, care and tenderness…. a home from home.
There is a 24 hour presence of day and night staff and well trained volunteers to ensure the comfort and security of patients. Medical and other health professionals who have been looking after patients at home can continue this care at La Maison de Tara.
The opportunity to care for a loved one often helps to lessen the emotional suffering caused by serious illness. However, increasingly in our society, some people do not have a family or social network that is sufficiently wide to offer this possibility. Our aim, therefore, is to offer people in this position the support they need at a time of great vulnerability.
La Maison de Tara is situated in Chêne-Bougeries in the Canton of Geneva. It is a non-profit, secular foundation, officially recognised to be of ‘public utility’. Thanks to the support of several communes and some generous donors, La Maison de Tara opened its doors in october 2011.
La Maison de Tara was founded in Geneva in 2007 as a public utility charity in the lineage of the Hospice Movement. Its goal is to provide patients and their family, with care and support during the last days of life.
