Vrindavan Hospice

“Everyone is seeking pleasure, but there is only one pleasure that can reach the heart, that is the pleasure of giving love and receiving love. We need love, that's our nature.”

—Radhanath Swami

HOSPICE

Although modern medicine is making tremendous advancement in disease management, there are many cases that reach a state of incurability. Death is inevitable but arrives slowly, accompanied by severe pain, discomfort and emotional crisis both to the patient and the family. Globally, hospice is a facility for such end stage patients who do not need active medical intervention for cure.

Terminally ill patient

Provide Skilled Nursing Attention

Personalized services is the foundation upon which we build our premise.Skilled and capable medical care goes a long way in helping an individual bound to death and limited by life.In this time of need, it is but our ultimate goal to honor their decisions and choices, thus giving them the emotional and spiritual support they desire. Combined with professional advice you can trust, it becomes only natural that you are back in the cradle from your infant years

Assist and support the family on a physical, emotional, psychosocial and spiritual level. Care and counselling goes beyond the person in his last stages, to embrace the family that goes through the same tramuas thrust upon the individual. This type of care provides the patients family with a route to go beyond the physical realities of an advanced conditiion and deal with important emotional and spiritual issues. Simply because,in the end every moment spent together is a precious and infinite memory.
