Most individuals that require palliative care are tended to by their family and friends. But, this is not always feasible. Here lies the importance of a of a palliative care team. Our palliative teams comprise of physicians, pharmacists, nurses, social workers, psychologists, spiritual counselors and other allied health professionals such as nutritionists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists. All these services are provided totally free of cost to all patients under our care!
We provide opportunities for both the individual and their family to play an active role in planning care. The patient and his or her family are encouraged to choose the kind of care they would require. Each team would then be customized based on these requirements.
Volunteers play a very important role in palliative care, providing support services such as family support, companionship for the patients, relief for the caregiver when required and transportation. If required, we also arrange for home support workers for the families.
Any donation received is used solely for providing medical care, except those received for specific needs such as weddings of the patient’s children, education sponsorship etc..
