To the children’s hospice Sternenbrücke

Since 2003, the Sternbrook Children’s Home has been helping children and teens, and since 2010, young adults up to the age of 27 with a life expectancy of a decent life until their death. Young sick people and their relatives are cared for not only at the last stage of life, but also during the course of the disease, which often lasts for many years. Families can be admitted to a child care home for at least 28 days a year as part of respite care in order to gain strength and comfort on the difficult road ahead. A multidisciplinary team is on site at the Hamburg children’s home to professionally accompany and care for sick young people and their relatives – relieving their feelings of loneliness and isolation and thus relieving them mentally and physically. Even after the loss, Sternenbrücke continues to carefully support families in their grief.

It depends on your help

In order to be able to help all affected families – regardless of their financial situation – Sternenbrücke relies on donations every year, with only part of the costs of caring for sick young people and accompanying their relatives by health and nursing care insurance companies.
