Prompt Care International Foundation (PCIF) was started to serve the needs of patients requiring hospitalisation, and has now grown into a full-fledged charitable organisation that has helped people in India and abroad. PCIF also provides community-based psychosocial rehabilitation and training in the field of mental health.
Their services are as follows:
Prompt Medical Services: Prompt Medical Services is based on the belief that the best possible health care should be available to needy members of society without any discrimination. They work to improve the health and quality of life of people living with kidney diseases, mental illnesses, HIV-AIDS, cancer and cardiac problems. They offer a ‘Medicare Package’ that gives patients access to ambulances, blood banks, crematorium services and more.
Prompt Rehabilitation Centre: Anand Rehabilitation Centre is a halfway home for people suffering from schizophrenia. It was prompted by the lack of services for the care and psycho-social rehabilitation of schizophrenia patients. Their residential centre, which has been operating since 2002, is the first of its kind in Mumbai city. The centre focuses on the development of social and practical skills to overcome patients’ deficits in personal, social and vocational functioning. Their programmes are conducted by professionally trained staff. The centre offers other services including referral services, supervision of medication, educating families and other members about schizophrenia and organising support groups for the families.
AIDS Care: PCIF has set up an exhibition van that promotes understanding of HIV/AIDS with special sensitivity to youth and women to curb the growing incidence of HIV-positive people. The van has an audio-visual presentation to attract visitors. Trained counsellors also provide advice on critical and sensitive personal problems. It would also screen documentaries and short films on the spot. They also planned to have an interactive voice mail system with two telephone numbers attached to a toll-free number that patients could call.
They also accept blood donations and propose to start a corpus fund for the purpose of establishing a “Kidney Care” centre.
