More centers for elderly care are needed in India

Posted by satyanand Hospital on November 10th, 2017

There is perhaps no other country in the world that has seen such a significant change in the socio-economic structure during the past few decades.

Once upon a time, joint families used to exist in our country. With the economic development, these joint families disintegrated into nuclear families.

Since job opportunities are available in the big cities and there is a tendency of switching jobs for career growth, people need to change locations frequently.

It is not always possible for the parents to move to the new location. As a result, so many senior citizens are forced to live alone.  

Very few of them stay fit and healthy until the last breath.  Most of the senior citizens need help and care because of the physical dependence.

In the background of this situation, it is critically important to build state-of-the-art facilities for Elderly care in Puneand other cities.

The elderly care centers need to offer specialized, professional care

Assisted living in Pune should be capable of serving senior citizens in the best manner.

Patients who need special care due to aging-related syndromes, dementia, or other multiple chronic illnesses should be handled with care. 

Medically complex, frail senior citizens are difficult to handle. Only experts can do it well. In spite of that, taking care of elderly people is not a highly-paid job in our country.

The time has come when the authorities should look into it and try to improve the situation. At the same time, it is equally important to make elderly care a prestigious and admired job profession.

The role of caretakers is as critical as the role of specialized doctors. In spite of that, they do not get the proper recognition and respect.

When the job profile gets importance, we get the best workforce to offer geriatric care.

Structured geriatric training programs are needed

With the increasing demand for trained personnel, we need to build structured training programs to impart the technical knowledge. Then only we can expect top-class services in a center for Elderly care in Pune.

In every university and medical college in India, we need academic programs for it. In the hospitals and healthcare centers, there should be special provision for it.

It is time to change our approach and attitude towards geriatric care. Then only we can expect a change in the situation.

The critical skills                                                                                    

As mentioned earlier, geriatric experts are required to master a few critical skills.

  • They should be able to manage the psychological change happening due to old age.
  • They need to know the skills of team-based care.
  • They should develop the clinical focus to emphasize the functional status.
  • Geriatric experts are required to learn the holistic approach.
  • They should enjoy their job.

People working in a center for Assisted living in Pune must realize that they are supposed to manage patients who have a different physiology and psychology.

Hence, the approach should also be different.
