This project will provide home hospice care to 10 terminally ill patients in Nepal every month. Currently, terminally ill patients in Nepal do not have an option to have hospice care at their homes. Only a couple of hospice care organizations in Nepal currently offer in-patient hospice care. A large majority of terminally ill patients do not receive any kind of end of life care. With this project, we will be able to provide peace, comfort, and dignity to the terminally ill patients.
"Hospice care for terminally ill" is a proposed project to establish palliative care services in Ramgopalpur Municipality of Mahottari, Nepal. The Binaytara Foundation will support manpower and infrastructure development, and provide initial resources and support to implement evidence-based palliative care services in the area. This project will commence alongside the Binaytara Foundation's upcoming comprehensive cancer center in Ramgopalpur.
The proposed palliative care center in Ramgopalpur will help provide home based hospice and palliative care services to terminally ill patients in that municipality and several other surrounding villages within 10 kilometer radius. This project is expected to provide palliative care services to approximately 250 terminally-ill patients annually.
1.) Terminally ill patients will have a comfortable, peaceful, and dignified death. 2.) Family members taking care of the terminally ill will get good sleep, emotional relief, and physical comfort if the patients are comfortable. This leads to increased productivity and may help minimize stress related illnesses. 3.) This may help the family economically as they may be more productive than while taking care of a terminally ill loved one whose symptoms and discomfort was poorly managed.
