Cane Hospice

The 22 bed inpatient hospice has been completed. We opened on 28 January 2006. We are taking in patients for inpatient care (both terminal & respite) now. We are continuing to build the Phase 2 of the Jaffna Hospice Complex.

In July 2008, an average of fifteen patients were being cared for, on a regular basis, in the Hospice. Now we look after on average 24 patients at ony one time

Prayer hallThe CANE Hospice Doctor (Dr Yogarajah), along with Dr Jeyakumar, Consultant Oncologist and his Junior Doctors, are providing continuous care for the resident patients in the Hospice.

Since Feb 2004 CANE's home care team have successfully cared for over seventy (mostly terminal) cancer patients in their homes.

CANE has been planning a hospice service since Sept 2002 and after a few setbacks finding premises for the hospice, we are delighted to announce The Jaffna Hospice Home Care Service which has now been providing terminal care in the patient’s home, following the success of a similar service operational in Calicutt, South India. Since the opening of the Residential Hospice the need for the Mobile Hospice has dramatically declined.

CANE has forged links with The Jaffna Cancer hospital, The Jaffna General Hospital as well as the Society for the Prevention of Cancer and Aids, Northern Province to collect information about the cancer patients who are in need of terminal care.
