Patients family members who are their attendants will also avail of this facility.
Premashraya will provide shelter to 200 patients and 300 family members thereby easing the family’s situation with an economical, clean, hygienic and homely place to stay during the course of treatment. In a nurturing and home-like environment, Premashraya will work towards pacifying the overpowering effect of cancer through personal care and affection.
