Supportive care

About the Department

The Symbiosis Centre of Assisted & Supportive Care at Symbiosis University Hospital & Research Centre offers a unique situation where the elderly can be looked after in a homely environment, plus enjoy medical backup and follow-ups as per their needs at the university hospital. Managing elderly patients is as different as managing paediatric patients. Understanding their needs when they are finding it difficult to communicate, and working to achieve the best possible quality for their lives, respecting their choices, and wishes are key to better supportive care. With experts in Assisted & Supportive Care, we look forward to having ongoing dialogues with patients and/or families. Through these interactions and communication, we always strive to give much-needed dignity to patients.
