I gave up my job as car driver, to be with my wife who was looked after by Lakshmi Palliative Trust. They gave good palliative care, free of charge. But I needed an income, with 2 small children and poor background. I am so grateful to them for getting me a job again with their contacts, as call driver! Palliative Care extends to Bereavement Care and Rehabilitation.
Doctors are living gods, mine is the best. Dr. Tiruvadanan is my comfort, inspiration and solace. Mrs. Tiruvadanan, most lovable and kind hearted. She doesn’t want to see anyone in pain. Her social work and service is incomparable. All the staff are polite and considerate. A nice homely neat place where the help they render is unequable.

17-year-old Michael had Hodgkins Lymphoma, a type of Cancer. He underwent chemotherapy to cure his disease. But he developed severe pain due to the treatment. One morning he came to our clinic holding his stomach and said "Treat my pain or kill me!" We gave him tablet Morphine. Relieved of pain, he continued the treatment. Michael is now alive, cured, married, has a child.
My husband, Mr. Murugan would shout with severe pain due to cancer. Children were afraid to come near him. Fortunately, we came to LPAPCT clinic. The tablets they gave relieved his pain and he went back to work. As the disease progressed, he became weak and they came home to provide the care. After he died they are supporting my children's education. I am ever so thankful to them.
FAQs & Misconceptions
What is Palliative Care
Palliative Care is the active medical treatment given for relief of pain and other symptoms in patients with prolonged and life-limiting illnesses like cancer. It is a ‘WHOLE PERSON’ approach which includes addressing not only the physical, but also the psychological, social, spiritual, and financial issues of both patient and family. The aim of Palliative Care is to improve the quality of life by enabling patients to be as active as possible and also to cope with the disease, whatever the stage!
Who should reach out for Palliative Care?
Any patient who undergoes suffering due to any chronic disease at any stage, can reach out for Palliative Care, including those who are undergoing treatment and likely to get cured. Examples: patients with cancer, chronic liver disease, chronic kidney, lung and heart disease, age-related and neurological illnesses and also those who suffer from longstanding pain like chronic arthritis or low backache.
Do Palliative Care doctors come on home visits?
Yes, doctors specialized in Palliative Care do make home visits when the need arises. Each case is assessed individually and if at any stage a home visit is necessary to help palliate, doctors, or their team, do the needful. Sometimes it could be enough even for a trained nurse or volunteer, to do the home visit.
