Caregiver Saathi™ aims to create an eco-system of well-being for those family members, who are the primary caregivers to their dear ones battling chronic medical conditions or terminal illness. We are the companions for the Caregivers.

Caregiver Saathi™ is an endeavour to acknowledge and support Caregivers of patients with terminal illness or chronic conditions, so that together we can improve the quality of their lives, their well-being and those that they care for.

Saathi is Hindi for “companion” and we believe caregivers of terminally ill patients need a friend who understands, supports and is there for them as they walk along the difficult path of supporting their loved ones.

There are many ways in which a caregiver is challenged and often the caregiver also needs care, emotional support, understanding, easy access to information, guidance from experts and wisdom from others who have similar experiences. It is our endeavour to bring it all together and make it easy access for the caregiver.

Given our social narrative of caregiving, expectations from family, and the nature of caregivers, family caregivers tend to be unrecognized, unappreciated and deprioritized, even by themselves. It is our endeavour to highlight their significance and role in the well-being and healing of the patient (care-receiver).

We partner with doctors, health practitioners, employers and well-wishers of caregivers to build a supportive community for the caregivers.

We are currently looking at the cities of Mumbai, NCR and Bengaluru to create an impact before we expand to other cities.
