Mangalore's first standalone Palliative Care Unit/Hospice
Ave Maria Palliative Care has a mission of providing compassionate, holistic care to patients suffering from life-limiting and terminal conditions and offering psychological, spiritual, and social support necessary to patients and their families. Our services are free and open to all irrespective of age, gender or religion.
With this mission in mind, we, a team of professionals established Ave Maria Palliative Care, a 15-beded hospice on 8th September 2008, on the scenic hillock in Mangala Nagara, Vamanjoor on the outskirts of Mangaluru. We strongly believe that when cure is impossible, the possibilities for care are endless.
Most people hope to die at home peacefully in their sleep. Unfortunately, this does not become a reality for many who are afflicted with debilitating conditions like cancer, kidney failure, liver failure, respiratory diseases or dementia. The end-stage of the disease is often a painful process not only for the person suffering from the condition but also for the caregivers. When patients and families need to prepare emotionally and spiritually for the possibility of death, palliative care becomes a need of the hour for many. It is our strong conviction that human beings deserve respect and dignity until their last breath.
