WELCOME TO OUR VAISHNAVAS CARE® WEBSITE! WE ARE SO HAPPY THAT YOU FOUND YOUR WAY TO OUR PROJECT.
The Vaishnavas CARE website strives to provide relevant and useful information updated regularly by our qualified teams of medical and IT professionals. Thank you for visiting us!
It is only by kind and generous donors like you that we have been able to maintain our services to Lord Krishna’s devotees since we first began in 2000. We are a non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization so please know that 100% of your contributions are tax-deductible. Your donations are used, first and foremost, for caring for sick and terminally ill devotees! As they face their final months, many unexpected financial needs often arise, even when they have insurance or other government medical assistance. Vaishnavas CARE endeavors to assist them at this very difficult time so out-of-pocket expenses can be kept to a minimum.
Among other services, Vaishnavas CARE provides long-distance phone consultations, Skype meetings, and ongoing email support to patients and caregivers. We are a resource for families, guiding them when acute and long-term care is required for family members or when they have questions when seeking hospice care for a terminally ill loved one. Vaishnavas CARE lends emotional support and guidance when someone is in a crisis situation. We have licensed professional counselors, a psychologist, and a psychiatrist to assist by phone when needed. In addition, our volunteers include medical physicians, registered nurses, a hospice and palliative specialist, an Ayurvedic Practitioner, and a physical therapist, who can guide someone so they receive proper assistance when needed.
In addition, Vaishnavas CARE provides individual grief counseling and support before and after the loss of a loved one or friend. In some communities we offer 10-week grief support groups. We also present one to three-day seminars to educate those who wish to learn how to assist terminally ill loved ones, friends, and members of their Vaishnava communities. In this way, we teach the skills necessary to form local Vaishnavas CARE Teams throughout our ISKCON movement so community members are cared for in a knowledgable and loving way. We offer a Distance Learning Course on our website entitled, “The Art of Caring for Vaishnavas.” (Information can be found on our Home page) so no matter where you live you can also be taught to render this valuable service in your community!
To assist in this much-needed service of caring for the terminally ill, we offer our book, The Final Journey — Complete Hospice Care for Departing Vaishnavas (Torchlight Publishing), by Susan Pattinson, RN (Sangita Devi Dasi) which teaches step-by-step advice on how to care for your family member or friend at the end-of-life. This invaluable information will help you to feel confident if and when you are called upon to provide this service for someone you care about at the most important time in his or her life.
Additionally, we are associated with the Bhaktivedana Hospice in the Holy Dhama of Vrindavan, India, a
40,000-square foot facility that provides inpatient as well as home visits for terminally ill Vaishnavas. Please see further information on this website at: http://vaisnavascare.org/?page_id=668
Please Contact Us at any time so we can answer your questions. We are here to assist you!

“We should always try to give service to the Vaishnavas.
Worshiping Krishna must be accompanied by service to His devotees.
Service to devotees is higher than service to Vishnu.”
