Sophisticated ICUs with equipment of highest standards are available for pre and post-operative surgical monitoring in the Surgical ICU and a similar Medical ICU for all other seriously ill patients.

Support Groups

The support group sessions conducted by SSCHRC encourages patients to share their experiences with other patients at different stages of the same disease, such interaction will help develop a peer network to support each to address solutions to common problems faced such as disabilities, dependence on others or the emotional difficulties.

 

We also conduct caregiver support groups where the caregivers can address the common issues faced by them and device methods to overcome them with the help of the hospital.

To participate in the Support Groups,

Holistic Care

In addition to support groups, we believe that cancer care is more than just medical treatment and involves a holistic approach.

 

Trained yoga specialists provide easy bedside yoga classes for all our patients and in collaboration with Yoga Mandir, two yoga sessions per week are held in the auditorium for patients, caregiver and sometimes the staff/doctors join in too. These sessions help develop an informal peer network to support each other through this journey of life with cancer. Several research studies have been conducted to show the positive impact yoga and meditation can have on an individual’s overall well-being, many of our patients personally vouch for this!

 

We also conduct monthly music therapy sessions where renowned, international artists of Indian classical music give concerts at our auditorium, this music is relayed live on all our in house televisions as well as our Facebook page

 

Cancer Screening

At Sri Shankara Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, we believe that the fight against cancer is complete only when adequate preventive measures are taken. Routine health check-up and screening have been historically shown to reduce cancer deaths.

Our screening facilities not only include tests and procedures but also cover cancer risk reduction counseling.
