Palliative Care Centre

Palliative Care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problems associated with life-threatening illnesses, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification, impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.

The goal of Palliative Care is to treat as early as possible the symptoms and side effects of the disease. When a patient reaches a point at which treatment to destroy the disease is no longer warranted, palliative care becomes the total focus of care. It will continue to be given to alleviate the symptoms and emotional issues of disease. It focuses on caring, not curing. Palliative care is also called comfort care, supportive care and symptom management.

Shri Sugalchand Jain is an active member of the Governing Council of the Cancer Institute, Adyar. Seeing the sufferings of the underprivileged terminally ill cancer patients, he decided to set up a Palliative Care Centre at Sriperumbudur.

It is a 50-bedded Centre, built on a 5-acre land overlooking a lush green garden, with a total built up area of 42,000 Sq. Ft. The Centre is equipped with modern medical equipment and comforts keeping in mind the patient's requirement.

The Palliative Care Centre will function under the Medical & Technical support of the Cancer Institute, Adyar, under the guidance of Padma Vibhushan Dr. V Shanta. The Centre will provide food; medicine, physiotherapy, counseling and terminal care without any cost, to the inmates with a life-limiting illness.
