About Shanti Palliative Care Centre
The Inspiration Behind Shanti Palliative Care
From years of observation in medical field, we have witnessed huge number of diseases, its miseries, and even the physical and mental distress level among the people suffering especially with chronic illnesses. That witnessing, the fact that we have many people above 70/75 years and significant number of cancer patients present at a state where cancer directed treatment is not likely to benefit made us realise about the importance of "Holistic approach" where along with symptom treatment extra care, compassion, and emotional support is provided. This approach (Palliative medicine & care) addresses not only the patient but also the family and caregivers. And that triggered us to offer this humane effort by trained team of doctors, nurses, volunteers at out hospital.
