Palliative Care

Palliative Care


The Department of Palliative Care at Bhaktivedanta Hospital & Research Institute was incepted in 2007 and since then it has been providing services to more than 2000 families in Mira Road, Bhayandar, suburbs of North Mumbai, Thane, Vasai-Virar, etc.

Our palliative staff is dedicated to provide holistic healthcare to support to critically ill patients and their families physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. We offer inpatient and outpatient services to needy patients and families.

For bedridden patients we have provisions for visiting and providing them palliative care at their homes. Such patients can register for our Home Care Program at an affordable range. The team of Palliative Care serves as per the needs of the patients and not on the patient’s prognosis.
