Palliative care services (St. Alphonsa Palliative Care) at Mar Sleeva Medicity Palai aims to provide relief from pain and other distressing symptoms; intends neither to hasten nor postpone death; integrates the psychological and spiritual aspects of patient care; offers a support system to help patients live as actively as possible till the end of life or die with dignity. We give “Extra Care” during the remaining days and take special care not to leave the patients counting days. Not only do we focus on providing comfort to the terminally ill but also provide an ecosystem of total care – physical, psychological, social and spiritual. We offer support systems to families that are affected and are coping with their own bereavement during the patient’s illness. Our focus and approach is one that improves the quality of life of both patients and their families. We have a dedicated 10-bedded ward for patients requiring palliative care along with individual rooms on demand.
Home Care is an integral and noble part of the palliative services of Mar Sleeva Medicity Palai. We bring a personal touch to the home delivery process, which truly is comforting from the care receiver’s point of view. Our home care team consists of a palliative specialist doctor, trained nurses and social workers/volunteer groups in association with various parishes of the Diocese of Palai. The home care team is like a considerate friend who is from the medical field and is present to help people at their homes for no material returns. We also have volunteer groups who actively participate in patient needs.
Mar Sleeva Hospital is regarded as the best palliative hospital Kottayam has to offer from all the hospitals in Kottayam for an excellent reason.
