CARER – Cancer Recovery and Rehabilitation is an integrative approach to healing. Founded by Samara Mahindra, the program was launched on June 2016. It offers a type of rehab specifically designed to help cancer patients make healthy lifestyle changes.
First of its kind in the country, the organization recognizes the traumatic ordeal a patient goes through during and after cancer treatment, and focuses on the importance of providing the most efficient care at this vulnerable time in their life. “CARER is a cancer recovery program that weans a patient off medical care into a healthier lifestyle by providing a holistic approach to healing after treatment” states Samara Mahindra, founder of CARER.
The program is carefully formulated using the medium of technology and human support and interaction to provide patients with the most effective healing without disrupting their daily routine. It is designed such that one has access to all the information and therapies at the comfort of their home through written content, audio clips, informative content videos, practice video tutorials and a step-by- step guide covered over 12 to 24-weeks, created for those just out of treatment and others who have been in remission for awhile.
“The CARER Program conceptualises cancer recovery by providing an all encompassing approach in the comfort of your home. My journey with CARER re-affirmed my conviction that a holistic approach to post recovery cancer care is crucial when on the road to wellness” said Meher Randhawa, Genetic Counseller.
