What is Palliative care?
Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families, facing problems associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.
What is Hospice care?
HOSPICE CARE – a kind of care where supportive/palliative treatment is given to terminally ill patients. Medical, nursing and psychosocial care is provided. Hospices provide a range of services which include pain and symptom control, psychological and social support, rehabilitation complementary therapies, counseling, spiritual care, practical and financial advice, and support in bereavement.
Karunashraya Hospice receives less than 20% funding from the different foundations. The remaining 80% comes from the kind donations made by Individuals like you. Please continue to show your support so that we can continue to provide the best professional palliative care for our patients and families. Thank you for your kindness
Our aim is to make sure that everyone with advanced stage cancer gets the very best care, and we believe hospices are critical to achieving this.
