As We Go
Preserving a Lifetime of Dignity and Wellness
Hospice is where notions of curative treatment are replaced by a committed effort to provide comfort and compassion as the patient reaches the end of the journey of life. Caring for the client’s medical, social, emotional and spiritual needs is what hospice is chiefly about. What drives the Neogen Care Hospice is the belief that terminally ill patients need compassionate support above all else. Neogen Care Hospice assists such patients to address end-of-life issues and continue living with dignity and comfort. Neogen Care extends its support to the family of the patient too to tide over a highly stressful and traumatic situation.
Though the hospice program is primarily about in-home care, services may also be provided in a hospital or nursing home if need be. Also, our Hospice team helps with taking informed choices about caregiving, educates and updates the family on the necessary skills, and provides empathetic support and hand-holding through the terminal period of the patient. We also help the families cope with the trauma of bereavement.
Neogen Care’s strength lies in blending personal, clinical and technological excellence to give the best possible care for the client that the health system can offer at the moment, and that too in the privacy and comfort of the home.

Four-level Hospice Care Programme
Neogen Care has devised a comprehensive four-level Hospice care programme that takes care of the entire gamut of patient well being:
Routine Home Care
This is the most common and basic service mode that we offer at the patient’s home, long-term care facilities or nursing homes.
To address special situations that call for acute symptom management in order to avoid hospitalization, Neogen Care Hospice staff provide continuous service in shifts of upto 24 hours/day.
In the event that a patient’s condition cannot be managed at home, special arrangements will be made at other facilities to provide hospice services round the clock until the patient is fit to return home.
Continuous caregiving can be challenging for the family and often leads to ‘burnout’ of the caregiver. Neogen Care will step in at such situations to relieve the caregiver and give him a welcome break until he is fit to resume the caregiving duties.
