Support Care of terminally-ill poor patients by sponsoring the part salary of our Social worker, INR 3000


DEAN Foundation caters to that vulnerable, marginalised section of society that cannot speak or defend for itself - mainly the destitute, the homeless and afflicted women and children, those living below the poverty line. They care for those suffering from terminal, irreversible, advanced, incurable diseases like Cancer - both malignant and non-malignant, AIDS, etc. in the city and surrounding districts of Chennai with no access to palliative care.

The Basics

One of the goals of the institution is to be sensitive and responsive to the special requirements of each individual and family to access the highest quality care available through hospice.

How It Works

• Patients with advanced diseases come to our Outpatient Centres for treatment. Besides this, the Home Care Team visits patients who are bed ridden or home bound till they die or move out of physical proximity.
• The patients are looked after by a team of trained professionals including a social worker.
• This donation option will help in funding part of a social worker’s salary.

Importance of Social workers
5 year old Master S R was having stomach pain and vomiting when he was 3 ½ years old. On treatment, vomiting stopped and stomach pain still continued. Investigations which were done showed that the child has abdominal neuro blastoma, a common Cancer for children of this age group. The child was referred to DEAN Foundation’s unit. His condition deteriorated after chemotherapy and he needed symptomatic treatment which was given.
The parents wanted to take the child home and spend the remaining days of his life at home as a family even though the child requires constant medical attention. Currently the child is complaining of pain and occasional vomiting – a clear indication of his deteriorating. This was found out by his regular phone call.
On hearing that the condition of the child was bad and that he still had pain, the Social workers encouraged the family continue to come to our Out-patient department. They were reassured that should the condition deteriorate, the treatment and support will continue through Home based care also, as and when required.
