Adding Life to Days, not Days to Life.
What does it mean to be alive?
Being fully alive is for anyone and everyone! Live in the moment! Tomorrow will take care of itself! Live in the now when you can, not when it becomes impossible to do so.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it a registered body?
The Shanti Avedna Sadan Trust is a Charitable Trust, registered under the Societies Registration Act of 1860 No.BOM 173/78 G.B.B.S.D and the Bombay Public Trusts Act 1950, No.F-4862 (Bom) of 1978.
Are there any branches?
The first Sadan and the main branch was established in Mumbai in 1986. Over the years we established branches in Delhi (1994), near Safdarjung Hospital, and in Goa (1986), in the village of Loutulim.
What is the capacity?
The main Branch in Mumbai, with the new extension can accommodate up to 100 in-patients. There are five patient wards of 10 beds each and fifty patients in double-bedded rooms.
The Branch in Delhi has a capacity of 40 beds, with one floor for the males and one for the females.
The Branch in Goa is in a village setting. We started with a Goan Villa donated to us. Today we have a brand new modern building with bright airy rooms and fully equipped to look after our in-patients. We have a capacity for 25 patients.
Are there any private rooms?
Shanti Avedna Sadan is a service organization where absolutely no charges are levied. Hence, there are no private rooms in any of the Branches. The patients are always encouraged to be in the wards, as they can be looked after better and never remain lonely. The single rooms are not given on request, but are allotted by the nursing staff according to the needs of the patients. Each bed in the ward in all the Branches, however, can be curtained off for individual privacy and comfort when needed.
Who is entitled to this care?
Any patient who has advanced Cancer is entitled to this care. It is important however, that all possible useful treatment for the Cancer has already been given, and the patient will not benefit from any such further treatment, even for palliation. Our doctors very carefully screen the patient to confirm this, before admission. Preference for admission is given to those cases with severe distressing symptoms and the poor and destitute. All admissions are made irrespective of any caste or creed.
What are the timings for admissions?
Admissions are normally done during the daytime working hours from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. There are no emergency admissions.
