Solace is the first palliative care center in Kerala for children under 18. Solace has come across several cases where children suffering from serious diseases do not have a safe hygienic home to return on discharge from hospital. Solace has set up after care centres in four locations in Kerala, where such deserving children can be accommodated for a short period like a vacation home. An indoor play area equipped with toys, a library, small scale class-rooms are exclusively meant for these sick children to make them feel that they too can have a place to laugh and play with others. The mothers too can feel a comfort in seeing this and moreover they can have a relaxing time from their everlasting hardships. A nursing station is also provided in the after care centre through which the immediate needs can be addressed.
