The elderly in India constitute the fastest-growing population segment. As India ages, the demand for quality home healthcare services gets more diverse. The emergence of start-ups striving to create a nurturing ecosystem for the elderly is a boon in recent times. Different organizations with a diverse range of elder care home services are making consistent efforts to reshape the lives of the elderly. The focus, however, has remained largely on their ‘physical health.’ To support healthy aging, caregiving needs to evolve from ‘nursing home care' to a more human and holistic care for best ‘senior home care’.
For the elderly, ‘Home is where health is.’ Home care can be the key to achieving the highest quality of life possible. Home healthcare instills a sense of safety, security, and increased independence among them. It generally includes the following:
- Short-term or long-term home healthcare or nursing care at home for an illness, chronic disease, or disability—including ICU care
- Personal care for daily hygiene activities such as dressing, bathing, grooming, and toilet functions
- Therapy and rehabilitative services for dementia, depression, and other psychological disorders
Home healthcare…What lies beyond?
While there are different caregiving organizations, not all offer all the different types of home healthcare services. While few offer all, most of the services are medical-related care provided by nurses, paramedical staff, and therapists. Old age is a sensitive phase and various issues govern the downfall of the health of the elderly. Fear of death, loss of control over health, frailty, loneliness, lack of purpose in life, etc. are often attributed to aging. Due to caregivers' fixation with medical care, such issues go unnoticed by many. Filling this chasm, senOcare undertook a differentiated approach to elderly care in India so that they can lead positive, fulfilling, and independent lives. It’s about providing a holistic solution in elder care home services by combining compassion and care with accountability. The philosophy of care extends beyond the traditional health-oriented approach to include a more human-centric approach that fosters the physical, cognitive, and social well-being of the elderly.
