We are proud to be one such entity that has repeatedly set benchmarks and set trends for the rest of the industry to follow. Some of our innovative products have reached the grassroots level and their benefits have been reaped by people who would have never thought of getting insurance if it were not offered through convenient channels such as mobile operators and the postal service.”

The trust that Ceylinco Life has earned from the masses over three decades is evident in the Company’s position as the vanguard of the industry, and our parent company’s latest movement up the LMD Most Respected Entities ranking is a reaffirmation that public trust in Ceylinco Insurance remains steadfast.”

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.

Being responsible for the well-being of your loved ones is pivotal in the service they provide.
