About Company

This is a new palliative care service offered by THE JIMMY S BILIMORIA FOUNDATION, which has been set up with the prime purpose of delivering care – AT HOME – to those suffering from life limiting and debilitating conditions, such as cancer.

PALCARE does not provide 24 x 7 nursing at home. Instead it offers medical expertise in symptom management and pain relief, in counselling and helps with spiritual guidance – all this in the comfort of the patient’s home.

At PALCARE, teams of doctors, nurses and counsellors, make home visits to patients in need of the care. They set the protocol, monitor the patient’s condition, instruct the caregiver and follow up with regular visits to ensure the protocol is on track and the patient is comfortable.

The psychosocial counsellor provides emotional support and grievance counselling for the family after the patient passes on.

PALCARE’s primary challenge lies in delivering a top-class service with a first-rate team that shares the passion and vision of the founders. In this connection, we have an excellent, well experienced and compassionate Chief Medical Officer – Dr. Jayarajan. And he has a team of doctors, nurses, and psychologists, all of whom have been put through a rigorous training programme at Tata Memorial Hospital.

PALCARE caters to patients at any stage of their debilitating illness. It focuses on cancer patients. To begin with the service is limited to Mumbai.
