A serene and dignified departure
Sparsh offers patients a serene atmosphere to spend their last days, before making a dignified departure from this world.
During the last days, we try to give patients all the comfort and care that they desire, besides treatment and nursing.
This palliative care is most relevant and useful in the case of the terminally ill, as in the last phases of cancer, and there is nothing left to do but make the patient as comfortable as possible, under the circumstances.
Families of such patientsare often not able to deal with this stage of a loved one’s life.
Sparsh Hospice ensures that the autumn of life is traversed with love, affection and dignity.
And the end is blessed with tears of relief, more than sorrow.
What is Palliative Care?
Palliative Care is a branch of medical science which concentrates on improving the quality of life for those patients who have reached the end of the road, and are termed, ‘terminally ill’.
End stage disease management and palliative care are specialised disciplines within medical practice. And include addressing commonly occurring side effects of procedures like chemotherapy – which is used in treating cancers and results in side effects like nausea, constipation, lack of appetite, depression- with appropriate medication.
Spiritual and pschychological counselling also enables patients to manage their pain better, reducing suffering
