ISKCON PHILADELPHIA VAISHNAVAS CARE HOSPICE ROOM
We are pleased to announce the opening of our ISKCON Philadelphia Vaishnavas CARE Room in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on the East Coast of the United States. This is a small, but comfortable, cozy and quiet room for our congregational members who are diagnosed by their physicians with a terminal illness and have an expected prognosis of six months or less.
We have an excellent hospice agency very near to our temple with a medical staff who will make visits to the see the patient at our temple as well as provide the needed medical equipment. In addition, we have a very enthusiastic Philadelphia Vaishnavas CARE Team (many of whom are medical professionals) who are also trained in Vaishnavas CARE hospice caregiving and ready to serve the devotees with their emotional, spiritual and practical needs. There is a comfortable sitting room in the lobby where the room is located in the Grihastha (Householder) Building along with a private bathroom and kitchen facility. We offer a front and back porch for sitting and chanting japa and getting plenty of sunshine. If you are in need of this kind of CARE, please write to us here at “Contact Us” for more information.
