If ever there were Angels here on earth these are they, the nurses of our PCU (Palliative Care Unit), well that is certainly how our patents feel. All except our trained nurse Noot who stands near center without the red cross on her uniform have been a patent themselves in our Intensive Care Section. As a nurse Noot is a marvel knowing more and having more experience of HIV/AIDS and the resulting opportunistic infections than most doctors. They have recovered and been fortunate enough to be offered a job nursing new patents. One other exception is Lek standing at the back in the center of the doorway. He arrived at our center as a boy in 2006 at the age of 14; he went on to live at independent living having recovered from his opportunistic infections sufficiently. In the spring of 2010 he decided that more school was not for him and made a choice to become one of our nurses.

Every day is massage day for Lan she HIV and was married on Sunday the 20th of June 2010 to one of our male nurses. She is blind and has under gone special training to relieve pain through massage.

Since opening in January 1996 until March the 31st 2010, the Camillian Social Center has touched the lives of 1670 people living with HIV/AIDS. Of this number 730 people have died due to complications related to HIV/AIDS and 940 have been given the opportunity to return to the community.

The Camillian Social Center provides care to poor and abandoned people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) that are in the terminal stage of AIDS. These people are referred to the Center by the Government Social Workers employed at the provincial and district hospitals. A full-time nurse and ten (10) assistant nurses provide the residents living with HIV/AIDS with excellent quality medical care. The ten (10) nursing assistants are PLWHA that at one time were patients at the Center. Because of the nursing care and proper nourishment they have recovered and are now helping others. All the nursing assistants live outside the Center within the local community and are able to support themselves. The staff at the Center works in close collaboration with the Rayong district and provincial hospitals. The goal is to upgrade the level and quality of medical service given to the PLWHA. Our challenge is to accompany the people living with HIV/AIDS on their journey, particularly during the last days of their life, to ensure them a “meaningful” quality of life and a “gentle” death.

Fifty beds are provided for people living with HIV/AIDS that require palliative care. In palliative care department, the aim is to minimize the impact of the progressing illness so that the patients can live life to the fullest and maintain their dignity. When the PCU opened in 1996 death is neither hastened nor postponed; life is affirmed and dying is regarded as a normal process. However since 2004 Anti Retro Viral (ARV’s) drugs have been available through the Thai Social Welfare Department for Thai Citizens. Our challenge is to accompany the people living with HIV/AIDS on their journey, particularly during the last days of their life, to ensure them a “meaningful” quality of life and a “gentle” death.

On the 20th of January 2011 we have our latest addition too our PCU nursing staff. Miss May from our Independent Living Center. She has decided that her studies are at an end at eighteen years old. This was despite much encouragement from Fr, Peter and one of the volunteers to stay on at collage. However we have to remember that for many of our children it is very hard for them at school always trying to catch up after years of illness.

From left to right we have Kay who is head of our outside community service program. Lek who joined our staff from Independent in May 2010. May who has just joined and last but not least our present head of our utility nursing staff who was herself a patent not long ago.
