“EXCELLENT I AM”
CARE FOR THE AGED
In today’s fast paced world, often, the core Indian values of respecting and caring our elders get diluted when many people decide not to live with elderly persons in the family who are ill or not independent of handling themselves.
It is difficult to deal with physical and emotional problems of the elders. Rarely, the senior citizens are able to live normal lives and take care for themselves. At some point, mostly all aged people need someone to take care of them. Lack of a caretaker is a serious problem for older people who have chronic conditions and limitations on their ability. Government of India has envisaged this social crisis and under the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), adopted National Policy on Older Persons (NPOP) in 1999. The Policy promotes the health and welfare of senior citizens in India. It aims to encourage individuals to make provision for their own as well as their spouse’s old age. It also strives to encourage families to take care of their older family members. The policy enables and supports voluntary and non-governmental organizations to supplement the care provided by the family and provide care and protection to vulnerable elderly people. The main objective of this policy is to make older people fully independent citizens. But the problems are often compounded by increased medical costs due to poor health and many other socio economic factors.
In short, elderly population in India is increasing by sizeable percentage every year and the status of elders is getting changed in their family due to the complex socio-economic pattern. Thinking in line with Government’s NPOP Policy, the dedicated team at Excellentiam understood the need for an affordable and comprehensive service package for the elderly citizens with which they can have easy access to all social and personal care services. Perhaps, Excellentiam offers the best of medical and non-medical personal care services for the aged in West Bengal. The services are available in the comfort and security of their own home, which give a sense of control and reliability for elderly people. Primarily, we have identified following areas for the elder care.
At Excellentiam we have a division that specializes in providing Senior Citizen Care at your doorstep and facilitating medical logistics. As the life span in the country increases and more senior citizen only households become prevalent, specialized services for attending to their medical needs will become more and more required. This is where Excellentiam’s Elder Care services come in.
