Comprehensive medical treatment is offered to people with tuberculosis and multi-resistant tuberculosis. This infectious disease is particularly difficult to treat and is highly contagious. Patients are provided with a fully renovated ward, medication (treatment can last up to 2 years), adequate food and a dedicated and caring staff.
The Hogar also has a small pharmacy that allows people to access medication at a lower cost or for free. It is also possible to see a doctor on an outpatient basis. A bazaar is also open to the community several days a week. These two initiatives of the Hogar allow families in the surrounding area to have access to various products and medicines at a lower cost.
The pediatrics department takes care of children abandoned by their families because of malformations. Others are placed at the Hogar by their parents because they are waiting for surgery and need constant care. As soon as their health permits, they can return to their homes.
Palliative care is also offered at the Hogar. Patients can end their lives with dignity, respect and much needed spiritual guidance. If the family of the person who dies does not have the financial means, the Hogar takes care of the funeral and related expenses.
In Peru, the Father-Menard Foundation, in collaboration with the direction of the Hogar San Pedro, offers the opportunity to volunteers to put at the disposal of the most destitute, their time, their knowledge and their skills.
These people leave for a minimum period of 2 consecutive months. They offer the Hogar staff their help and support in their daily tasks. To the patients of the Hogar, they provide support, care, accompaniment, distraction and support.
Volunteers must be versatile, as they will be in contact with children, the elderly, the chronically ill, as well as with the nursing and support staff.
