Patient Care

DNipCare (Delhites’ National Initiative in Palliative Care) is an organization rendering psycho social and medical support through regular Palliative Home Care visits to the patients suffering from long term, bedridden and terminal illnesses.  This initiative was started on 15th August 2008 by a few young people from all walks of life and presently providing care and support for patients in and around Delhi.

In addition to the psycho social and medicinal supports, we also provide monthly food ration to the poorest of the poor patients on our rolls after conducting an impeccable assessment of their socio-economic conditions.

Though Cancer patients constitute around 75% of our patient base, we have so far attended to patients suffering from Paraplegia, Quadriplegia, Genetic disorders, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis and Mentally ill, perennial accident victims etc.        

We are also seeing the Cancer Patients living in Sir Soba Singh Dharamshala of Delhi State Cancer Hospital, GTB Hospital Complex, Dilshad Garden, Delhi regularly in addition to our regular registered patients.  We try to help them to come out of the cocoon of emotional isolation they are undergoing along with their progressing diseases especially when they do not have any other visitors to come from their far flung home towns in Uttarakhand, Bihar, Rajasthan, UP etc.  We also try to follow up the patients belonging to Delhi among them and provide necessary Palliation for them.   
As we are well aware that these patients do not have any festivals and festivities, but only the melancholy of excruciating pains and desperation, we the volunteers of DNipCare celebrate Indian Independence Day with these patients on 15th August every year
