Binaytara Foundation’s home hospice and palliative care program in Nepal started in January 2016. The hospice care team visits patients at homes as needed and provides education, support, and comfort care to the patients and their families. Hospice and palliative care is holistic care and includes addressing the social, psychological, and spiritual needs of patients with incurable diseases, as well as their physical needs.
The home hospice services are currently provided to terminally ill patients in Janakpur, Nepal with Dr. Ajay Mishra as the lead physician in this area. Dr. Mishra joined us through BTF’s Hospice Partnership for Nepal program.
With your help and support, we expect to be able to expand the number of patients served and the geographical area served. We invite you to join hands with us to help alleviate the suffering of terminally ill patients, one patient at a time. Your kindness can go a long way in helping a dying person live the last few days/weeks/months of their lives peacefully and surrounded by their loved ones.
