Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services for the differently-abled children

NIMS Medicity, Aralumoodu, Neyyattinkara, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India, popularly known as NIMS Medicity, is a 350 bedded Super speciality Hospital, which is one of the largest health care centres in South Kerala and South Tamilnadu. Its 40 departments include 20 specialities and 20 Super Specialties. NIMS Medicity offers free heart surgery project, free dialysis project, rehabilitation for HIV patients, free medical camps etc to the needy people.

The Managing Director of NIMS Medicity is also the patron of PADS (Parents Association of Disabled Students), which takes care of the education and healthcare needs of the mentally challenged students. Realizing the fact that rehabilitation and lifestyle training is the most important part of the care to be given to the mentally challenges students, we initiated free outpatient service for the inmates of PADS.

NIMS Medicity has established its own audiology and speech rehabilitation centre named as “NIMS-Anne Sullivan Centre for specially-abled children” at Neyyattinkara. NIMS also established Kerala’s first speech and audiology rehabilitation centre “without a bill counter” at Centre for Rehabilitation of the differently-abled (CAD), LMS Polio Home, Thiruvananthapuram which has more than 500 inmates.

Besides, NIMS is also providing free rehabilitation services to the needy students of “SAKSHAMA, Nemom, Trivandrum, KARUNYA MEDICAL MISSION, Neyyattinkara etc. we have also signed MOU with rehabilitation centres such as Gerdi Gutperle Agasthiyar Muni Child CARE centre, Vellamadam, K.K. District, Shanthi Nilayam, Paruthivila, K.K. District, Jyothi Nilayam, Palapallam, Karungal, K.K. District.

It is estimated that India has around 80 million people with disability, which may be age-related, accident-related or due to some medical conditions. According to the World Bank, one in every 12 households in India has a person living with a disability.

It was our Endeavour to transform NIMS Medicity into a disabled friendly zone offering unparalleled facilities with the objective of also caring for our special brothers and sisters, which would be the first hospital of its kind in Kerala. Now we are all set to be declared as “Disabled Friendly Hospital”, which enables people with disabilities to freely and safely move and access facilities within the hospital, which provides an environment of independence to individuals with a disability, which is their right granted under Persons with disability act, 2016. We realize the importance to have a barrier-free hospital environment so that people with disabilities can carry out their basic activities independently.

Realizing the fact that rehabilitating the suffering ones to help them restore the health or normal life through training and therapy is the most prime human service to the society, we aim at providing the following comprehensive rehabilitation services for the differently-abled persons, all in one campus.
