About Us

What does Annai Adhuragam mean?

It’s a Tamil derived word which literally translates as “mothers unconditional love for her child”. Adhuragam, in olden days, were referred to a therapy centre where patients are treated, especially war victims. As the name Annai Adhuragam suggests, our hospice aims to provide motherly care and comfort to patients who are counting their last few days of life.
