According to social studies, India is a young country with a large youth population. However, even data cannot deny the presence of a significant geriatric population residing in our country. Unlike the developed countries of the west, geriatric home nursing care services and quality assisted-living centres are few in hand or are very expensive.
Over the course of years, the social fabric of India has changed a lot. There is a transition from joint family to nuclear households as young family members have work obligations and an urge for privacy. Sometimes, the professional commitment leads them to stay in a new city or abroad. Hence, taking care of their elderly parents becomes difficult.
Elderly parents, especially those who stay alone or are widowed, feel a sense of hollowness in their lives. After retirement, some become financially dependent on their children, and others keep themselves busy by trying to take care of their children or the household. But with age, the mobility also becomes restricted. Once the young family members leave home, and health issues begin, elderly parents feel alone and purposeless. Anvayaa understands the problem of elderly care in India that exists in the domain of senior health and emotional care. With its holistic approach, live-in nurses are available to provide home nursing services to elderly parents who stay alone.
Anvayaa’s nursing services at home are affordable and accessible so that elderly parents can get prioritized care in the absence of their children without worrying about the finances. Our aim is to provide quality geriatric care to every household in India so that senior citizens do not feel neglected. The live-in nurses of Anvayaa are qualified and trained to provide holistic care to senior people. They handle all the chores and provide the same care that their children would provide if they were staying with their elderly parents.
Having a live-in nurse also ensures that any medical emergency can be handled promptly and quick action can be taken so that the elderly person gets proper medical assistance during a crisis situation.
