Support beyond therapy

Disease can defeat us. If a patient is diagnosed as incurable or prognosticated with a limited life-expectancy, we’re here to support them at the most difficult point in their journey.

We founded the Grünenthal Foundation for Palliative Care in 1998. Through the Chair of Palliative Medicine at the RWTH Aachen University we promote science and research in palliative care and the care of seriously or terminally ill people. We are passionate about preserving the dignity and quality of life at the end stage of people’s lives. Foundations have subsequently been set up in Spain, Portugal and Ecuador.

“With our patients, it’s no longer about healing, but about improving their quality of life until the end.”

Prof. Dr. Frank Elsner

Palliative Medicine Specialist at RWTH Aachen University Hospital
