In 1986 a nurse from Sedgefield and a doctor from Knysna started working together to help those who needed care at home.

The nurse was Sue Brukman and the doctor was Joan Louwrens. There was no name, no office, no funding, no mission statement, simply two people working together to care for others. This was the start of the Knysna Sedgefield Hospice – people working together to care. To find out more about the work Knysna Hospice does, visit their website
