Commenting on the achievement, Ajith Gunawardena, Executive Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of Ceylinco Insurance PLC said: “Financial Year 2020 was one of the most challenging for the corporate sector – not merely in Sri Lanka but the world over. Organisations who face these challenges fearlessly with re-aligned strategies will perform well. The corporate sector in Sri Lanka has weathered many storms and shown great resilience. We are humbled by the fact that once again we are ranked at No. 6 among the distinguished top 30 companies in Sri Lanka. Ceylinco Insurance PLC has demonstrated great resilience, surmounting every challenge with sustainable strategies.

I wish to dedicate this recognition to our valued customers, our staff and my fellow directors for enabling us to reach another milestone in our vibrant journey.”

Deputy Chairman of Ceylinco Insurance PLC and Ceylinco Life chairman R. Renganathan said: “A company’s true mettle is tested in times of adversity. Ceylinco Life’s performance in 2020 is an excellent demonstration of this. Our ability to adapt to the demands of the ‘new normal’ to not only fulfil our obligations to our customers and stakeholders, but to grow the business in a period of uncertainty and disruption more than justifies our presence among the top 10 of Sri Lanka’s leading corporate entities. Notably, Ceylinco Life also fulfilled all its community-related commitments in 2020, while continuing with its programme of policyholder rewards, despite the challenges of the year.”

As the clear market dominator in the Insurance sector, both, Ceylinco General Insurance and Ceylinco Life Insurance remained far ahead of competition in 2019 as well as in 2020.

Growing importance of training for nurses taking care of patients with NCDs

Published

on

To keep pace with the rapid expansion and increasing complexity of elderly home healthcare, training needs of home healthcare nurses must be identified and subsequent training programs implemented. English Nursing Care conducts training sessions on a weekly basis covering a variety of care needs for Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) such as diabetes. The World Health Organisation (WHO) record that NCDs are estimated to account for 75% of total deaths in Sri Lanka.

Furthermore, according to the Sri Lankan Ministry of Health “although people are living longer, they live more years suffering from disease and disability, mainly from NCDs; life expectancy at birth in Sri Lanka is 74.9 years but healthy life expectancy at birth is only 67.0 years.” This has a significant impact on quality of life.

English Nursing Care Sri Lanka works towards improving the quality of life of the elderly living with NCD’s by training nurses on the most advanced and developed methodologies brought through years of experience internationally and locally. Being responsible for the well-being of your loved ones is pivotal in the service they provide.
