On the premises of SÜLZLE Stahlpartner in Dußlingen, branch manager Uwe Köber (left in the picture) and his colleague Corinna Guttenberger (center) handed over a check worth 1,400 euros to the medical director of the “Tübinger Projekt”, Dr. Christina Paul (right in the picture), who is also senior physician at the Tropical Clinic Paul-Lechler-Hospital.
The Tübingen project has been providing specialized outpatient palliative care for almost 30 years. Ill people are thus able to spend the last phase of their lives comprehensively cared for at home in their familiar surroundings. The specialized outpatient palliative care service provides care for people in Tübingen and the district as well as in the communities of Pliezhausen, Walddorfhäslach and Wannweil. Last year there were 434 patients.
When healing is no longer possible and the disease progresses, patients and relatives are faced with many questions that need to be clarified for good care at home. With its team of experienced palliative physicians and palliative care specialists, the Tübingen project guarantees qualified and comprehensive care for seriously ill people. Alleviating illness-related symptoms, maintaining or improving the quality of life and taking into account the individual needs of the patient and their relatives are the central concerns of palliative care. A competent contact person can be reached at any time with a secure on-call service around the clock.
Already during the transition from the hospital to the home environment, bridge care supports patients so that they can receive optimal care at home after discharge. This integrated offer is a service provided by the cooperation partner Comprehensive Cancer Center Tübingen-Stuttgart.
To ensure that patients receive the best possible care, there is close cooperation with doctors in private practice, nursing services, hospice services, nursing homes, clinics and the inpatient hospice in Eningen.
In order to be able to provide this comprehensive palliative care at home, financial support is required that exceeds the legal remuneration of the health insurance companies.
