    Why do people affected by life limiting illness need Madrugada?

    At last! Madrugada is here to help you and your loved ones make informed decisions about your care preferences towards the end of your lives. Many patients prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home for as long as they can but their needs may change rapidly towards the end of life. Madrugada is able to assist with this care by co-ordinating a range of services known as Holistic Palliative Care.


    We need Madrugada in the Algarve to give patients a choice. We are passionate about making the end of life worth living by co-ordinating the very best palliative care services for patients and their families living in the Algarve. Madrugada will enable patients to choose to spend their remaining days at home supported by a team of professionals and volunteers appropriate to their needs and their wishes.

    What is Palliative Care? Palliative care is offered when curative measures are no longer appropriate but it is not just about pain management and symptom relief; it also offers emotional, spiritual and practical support.

    Palliative care supports patients and their families whose lives are affected by incurable illness such as cancer or motor neurone disease. A holistic approach to care helps patients and families come to terms with the situation and to live out the time that remains as fully as possible.
