Life without a future – this is what young adults with life-shortening conditions have to face, but still want to make the most of.
Being terminally ill means becoming more and more dependent on the support of others – a contradiction to what young adults usually strive for, and thus an enormous burden.
Balthasar young adults’ hospice wants to support young adults to maintain as much normality as possible despite their limitations.
Our highest priority is to maintain the young adults’ quality of life!
Balthasar was Germany’s first young adults’ hospice, opening in 2009.
