Bhubaneswar has seen rapid growth in the past few years. While the capital city of Odisha has witnessed the emergence of new technology and IT services, the healthcare sector is still primal. With the rapid rise in the senior population across the city, it is time that healthcare services also see a new light.
According to the survey conducted by the Federation of Senior Citizens Association, the state capital has around 1.2 lakh senior citizens’ population. Most of the elders falling in this age bracket are above 60 years of age and living alone. When elderlies are staying alone, they need extra care. They need someone to monitor their health and mental well-being.
All the statistics mentioned above makes us realize that there is an urgent requirement for eldercare in Bhubaneswar.
Why Healthcare in Bhubaneswar is Paramount?
Bhubaneswar being the largest city in Odisha expected to have the best healthcare service, especially for the elderly because population ageing is an inevitable situation and healthcare is of utmost importance.
Looking at the demographic transition, our country has more than 105 million older adult population; Odisha alone has more than 9.5% of seniors living alone.
As the state is witnessing a quick surge in elderly demographics, it’s time that the healthcare sector also raises the bar. Senior citizens nowadays also experience anxiety, stress, and insecurity, which lead to worsening of health both physically and mentally. Starting from daily activities like bathing, walking to keeping a tab on their health, older adults require help throughout the day.
It is true that the COVID-19 wave has already caused a bounty of trauma to the seniors. The social distancing norms to self-isolation all these can be a little tough for older adults. Thus, to help them in every walk of life, Tribeca Care is a great solution.
