My Dear K-Way Readers,

I look forward to get connected with my ardent Kway readers every month through this digital platform. I'm thankful to my institution and Almighty for this opportunity.

Whether one is capable or industrious depends on the individual. But to recognize one’s potential, or to encourage one to rise beyond one’s limitations we need a mentor who has the vision, a liberal hand, the wisdom and the determination to help us bring out the best in ourselves. A leader, a guru or a mentor is one who thinks good for everyone around.

Be it a family or a work place or a nation, to be led and inspired by a visionary leader is a great blessing. Every family has such leaders- they are our parents and grandparents. From the day of our conception, they think only about us and nothing but us.

The biological clock is ticking for everyone. Age, like time, can neither be reversed nor changed. When our parents age they become our responsibility; our hearts and minds should respond with love and affection and not let their minds sag with fear and loneliness. We are responsible to help them age with grace and confidence. A time will come when we have to assume the leadership in the family and govern the life and times of our dear elders with care and affection.

Today on October 01, the International Day of the Elderly, let's remember that no one escapes aging. Let's be there for them to age gracefully; let us make sure that our elders are safe, healthy and happy - physically and mentally. We shall greet them with a smile and make their worries runaway a mile. A wise person once said that we should be careful with the things we value the most. Let's value our senior citizens.

At Kauvery, we offer exclusive care for senior citizens. Do feel free to enquire about and explore our services. Our health check-ups are most comprehensive and utmost care is taken to keep everyone comfortable and safe. Our outpatient clinics and telemedicine consultations are always readily available to serve our senior citizens.

Have a great month ahead.

We’d love to know what you think about our monthly newsletter. Feel free to connect with us through

KAUVERY DAY CARE - The Chemotherapy Day Care Centre

Day care chemotherapy is a relatively new concept in India. Kauvery Cancer Institute - New Age Cancer Centre is one of the leading cancer hospitals to understand its importance and one of the few where the service is available.

Chemotherapy is given in an outpatient setting known as a chemotherapy day care. The day-care unit will cater to patients who are receiving infusions over a short duration (generally 2-6 hours). As the realm of comprehensive cancer care is advancing at a fast pace leading to more patients turning in for chemotherapy and other oncology services dedicated chemotherapy centre is the need of the hour.

Any emergency can be handled efficiently as we have an emergency room with the essential drugs and equipments and the patient can be shifted to the our Kauvey multispeciality hospital within a few minutes.

Kauvery Cancer Institute Day Care Centre is well-equipped and is ideally designed for those patients, who have been advised chemotherapy sessions. Patients have access to state-of-the-art infrastructure related to chemotherapy and the expertise of verified consultants.

The exclusive new labour suite complex was inaugurated at Kauvery Hospital on 7th September. Dr Meena Umachander, Professor - Obstretics and Gynaecology, was the guest of honour.

“These delivery suites are an added feature for the mothers to have their delivery in a calm and composed manner. High-risk pregnancies can be handled with utmost care at Kauvery as it is a multispecialty centre having expert panel of medical professionals 24/7 to handle any kind of pregnancy-related complications and the back-up of NICU care goes hand in hand!” said Dr Sabeeha, Senior Consultant Obstetrician at Kauvery Hospitals.

On World Heart Day, a free heart-check camp was conducted to identify cardiac risk among the younger population. The camp was inaugurated by Thiru P. K. Sekar Babu, Hon’ble Minister of Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department, Tamil Nadu.
