- What is life like for the young people, often young men in the prime of life, who are paralysed for life from a fall from a height, a road traffic accident or a tumour?
- What problems plague them once the hospital has fixed their spine and left them to their fate in their own homes with practically no support at all?
We come across not only tales of sorrow, pain and suffering, but also of courage, determination and selfless service among those confined to a bed.
Trivandrum Institute of Palliative Sciences (TIPS) is proud to be able to work with these young people.
On Sunday the 16 May 2010, we have arranged to bring twelve of them together at TIPS for a day of clinical service, education and entertainments.
Specialists in Neurology, Psychiatry, Urology, Physiatry and others will be on hand for consultations and advice. The meeting will also initiate a vocational rehabilitation program specifically for this group.
