New Services Introduced: Comprehensive Geriatric Care Services for Elderly (Mental disorders, Parkinsonism, Post-Stroke Rehabilitations).
Forgetfulness is not necessarily part of normal ageing. It may be early sign of Dementia.
The challenge posed by Dementia as a health and social issue is of a scale we can no longer ignore. Despite the magnitude, there is gross ignorance, neglect and scarce services for people with Dementia and their families. We now have a range of options to treat the symptoms of Dementia and offer practical help to those affected.
To meet the challenge of Dementia in India the initiative has been taken. This is a significant step forward in Dementia care movement in our country.
Assisted living is a group senior living facility that is not licensed as a nursing home. Assisted Living can respond to elder's unscheduled needs for assistance. Assisted Living is a good choice for seniors who need help for daily living, but do not require constant medical monitoring and care. In other words, Assisted Living is the best for people who need daily assistance but are not required to get admitted in a nursing home.
Our services will be unique in many ways :
The living environment in these facilities is designed to be very safe and comfortable. In addition, activities and social programs are designed for elderly and residents with Alzheimer's or Dementia.
The initiative has been taken care while there are more than 3.7 million Indians with Dementia and the total societal costs is about 14,700 crore. While the numbers are expected to double by 2030, costs would increase three times.
