The time of COVID-19 has been one of estrangement and alienation for every person throughout the world. People are getting affected in many more ways, on top of the pain of the illness itself. Each day brings with it positive news of healthcare workers and scientists making terrific strides in their fields. But it also brings forth a slew of disheartening news. One demographic has faced the worst of everything the coronavirus has brought with itself – our elderly.
The virus affects senior citizens disproportionately. Physical fragility comes naturally with age and with possible existence of comorbidity (the likelihood of some underlying illnesses, detected or undetected). We at Tribeca Care have become Eastern India’s largest Healthcare Company because of our dedicated work with the elderly from the get-go. Our main focus is to provide optimum services for those who are confined within inaccessible containment zones.
There has Tribeca Care has a fully functioning emergency service that operates 24/7 non-stop. We provide immediate assistance with hospitalization and providing ambulance service.
Our telemedicine service, Nirbhor, guides the ageing through navigating virtual consultations with their doctors with ease. We have designed this service keeping in mind the hassle seniors can face with new technology. Our Care Managers also check in with the seniors daily via phone call to make sure if they are comfortable or in need of anything that can be arranged remotely.
Many of our customers live outside of India, away from their ageing parents. With travel restrictions imposed strictly in every part of the world, it has become impossible for them to be close to their parents. This causes a plethora of emotions. The elderly sometimes keep these emotions repressed to cause their children less stress. While a heartbreaking situation, this can also have severe physical repercussions. Emotional distress negatively impacts one’s immunity. It is a dangerous thing in the fight against the virus. Our Talk to Me program enables the elderly to talk to us over a call so we can guide them to a point of emotional stability and reassurance. Not only psychological but this service can also provide advice along medical lines.
Apart from such assistance, we also organize virtual ways for the elderly to fight loneliness. From music therapy (a proven method of mental harmony) to yoga sessions specifically designed keeping in mind the physical restrictions and needs of the person, to reading sessions, we provide various activities to alleviate the loneliness. On top of that, it is online, so hygienic, and free of cost!
Our long-term association with the elderly has given us the expertise to handle the above with surgical precision and unparalleled care. So, you know that when you avail our services for your loved ones, you can rest assured!
