Community Palliative Care
We started home visits in the year 2013, to support terminally ill patients and their families by providing advice and medical and nursing care at home. Initially, we started this on a small scale and now, the service is extended to Western, Central, North Central and Southern provinces. We need more nurses to sustain the services as all the nurses are working full time in the hospitals. They give their time and expertise during their spare time, to which we are grateful. We need more doctors too, as we have only 3 doctors for home visits. Dr. Rohini Ranwala and Dr. Ayoma Perera have been great assets to Sahan Suwa Trust as they give their time amongst a very busy schedule.
