NGO Profile :
The DEAN Foundation provides palliative care (an area of healthcare that focuses on relieving and preventing suffering of patients) to the elderly and those suffering from incurable, terminal, and advanced diseases like Cancer, AIDS, neurological conditions etc.

The Foundation provides the following services:

  • Outpatient and Hospice home-based care: The focus is on providing practical, physical and emotional support to patients with love, acceptance and dignity. Their services include medication, dressing, stoma care etc. and material support like water beds, bed pans etc. Training is provided to the family and patients in basic nursing care and infection control. The patients are encouraged to communicate their feelings and emotions and are spiritually empowered through mediation techniques to regain strength. In addition to the above, home-based care enables people with chronic illness to be cared for at home.
  • Rural Health Care: The Karamadai Project and the Kanchipuram Project (currently in progress) will   cater to the palliative needs of about 125 villages, each with an average population of 3,000 people. This project will benefit patients with chronic and terminal diseases living in rural areas, facing problems of geographic isolation, with added care giving and financial responsibilities. The Project is incomplete due to lack of funds.
  • Paediatric Hospice and Palliative care: A paediatric ward in Egmore, Chennai was handed over to DEAN Foundation in 2010 by the order of the State Department of Health and Family Welfare. This centre enables easy access and consultation of specialists from other disciplines.
