Bangalore Charitable Trust
Bangalore Charitable Trust (BCT) is a registered non-profit charitable organization (NGO) founded in 2017 for taking care of all people by providing medical and nursing care of all types, especially to increase access and standards of meaningful palliative care for people with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses.
Palliative Care is the continuing active care of patients and their families at a time when the medical expectation is no longer a cure. Patients are referred to the service by either their family doctor or their hospital consultant. The service is available for patients in their own homes and in BCT’s Day Care facility. The aim is to improve the patient’s quality of life by maximizing pain control while relieving any other distressing symptoms. The service recognizes and responds to physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs, which may be experienced by patients and their families – adults and children.
