Hear what our patients and their families have had to say after receiving the PALCARE service. Their gratitude has been a source of great encouragement to us.

My family and I are thankful to you and your team for your advice, help and support during the medical treatment of my husband, Dr. Ramesh Kashikar. Your guidance and patience has helped us in his difficult times in last 2-3 months. Tons of thanks once again. God bless you.

First of all, our heartfelt congratulations and Big Thank you for your PALCARE team headed by Dr. Durva. Dr. Durva is a diamond brighter than Kohinoor in the crown jewel of your organization. For the first time in my life of 73 years, I saw a humanitarian approach along with profession in Dr. Durva and her team. Their contribution to the patient and to her relatives is to be felt not described. Whether it was pain, vomiting, nausea or another symptom response was fast both physically or in absence.
Once again myself, my children and others are indebted and grateful to PALCARE team headed by Dr. Durva. Dr. Jayarajan’s presence was felt though he was not here. Wishing PALCARE the very best and anything from our side we are ready to contribute.

I have availed of the services provided by your trust and am very pleased to inform you that your staff – Dr. Kalpesh, sister Nileena, sister Minal, sister Pratibha and Devaunshi have contributed to my mother’s departure in a more peaceful and less traumatic manner just by their patient demeanour and guidance.
I am truly grateful to you all for your sincere efforts and noble cause you have undertaken of which we have also benefitted. My most sincere “thank you” to you all. Please do continue the good work. I have already forwarded your number to a few people. Wishing you all the very best in your endeavor.

Dear Pheroza,

I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for all the love and care that you extended to my father and I, two total strangers. I could not have expected more help and emotional and medical support from actual family than I received from you and your team. I cannot thank you all enough for supporting us both through such a difficult time.

It was a difficult time for my father and myself, not least because of the fragile state of his mind and the actual physical distance between our two homes – London and Mumbai.

My dad had lived to a very ripe old age, 95, and from being a very active and independent person, a most gentle and loving man, he became more physically weak and resentful of his dependence on others, so much so, that it disturbed the state of his mind and


impacted negatively on his physical health. I had great difficulty in getting him to accept that at 95, he absolutely needed 24-hour care in his home.

I also understood that having lived on his own for so many years following the loss of his beloved wife and sons, he was reluctant, indeed belligerently opposed to having anyone in the home with him – not to mention fearful and nervous as he was so vulnerable.

From the moment I met you and your team, I immediately felt less anxious and I was right to trust you. Devaunshi in particular has been fantastic, not only in providing a medical solution for my father’s state of mind, but also giving me regular updates, emotional support, and continuing this, way beyond his passing away.

Without the support of the team, I know I would have been traumatized by it all.

They kept a watchful eye on Dad, listened to his ramblings, and most amazingly, gained his total trust.

I do not underestimate the help of the doctors and nurses and all the work behind the scenes, including regular WhatsApp updates. I cannot imagine what the last few months would have been like without your support and help – amazingly given for free.

And throughout it all, you maintained an incredible professionalism. What an incredible project this is, and how lucky I was to find you.

You are all amazing.
