Emotional and support programmes
Bangalore Baptist Hospital (BBH) understands that medical crisis affect not just the patients but also their families and caregivers. In the case of terminally ill patients or those with prolonged battles with ill health, the families find it challenging to cope with the illness, and possible loss of loved ones. To help families in their hour of need BBH offers a number of care and support programs.
Family members of patients on our Palliative Care Program are routinely followed up, for up to a year following the death of their loved ones. BBH helps families navigate their journey through grief by giving them an opportunity to share their experiences, offering support and grief counselling when required. BBH also organizes an annual memorial service for families who have lost their loved ones the previous year. It is a time when family members come together to share their experiences and engage in honoring the memory of their loved ones.
