Why are volunteers necessary in palliative care?

  • With the increasing number of patients being diagnosed with cancer or other life limiting diseases, the number of doctors and nurses are inadequate to handle care giving.
  • The need of the hour is volunteers and care givers to augment the services of healthcare professionals like doctors and nurses etc.
  • Support family members who are the primary care givers.
