CovaiCare – Independent Living
The journey of Covai to CovaiCare has made us evolve new concepts, adapt to changes and technology. We believe “Care” as a component of “Living” is very essential in the context of longevity. All Care components as listed below will be provided by Covai Elder Care Private Limited, a company which is part of CovaiCare:
Professional care and attention is given to Senior Citizens through Assisted Care Centre. Seniors may need eithershort term or long term Assisted Care. CovaiCare moves such Senior Citizens to the specially created CovaiCare Assisted Care Centre (CACC) for providing quality assistance, physiotherapy and rehabilitation at an affordable cost.
In Covai S3 Senior Care Centre at Coimbatore, we provide home health care and have now set up CACC with 7 beds.
Palliative Care is also the “End of Life” care when medicines have no effect on the patients.
Palliative care is specialized medical care to alleviate pain and improve the quality of life of patients with life-threatening medical conditions. It focuses on symptoms and not on the cause or cure of the ailment. It is also referred as comfort care or symptom management and it involves psychological, emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families.
Memory care is a special care that is to be provided to those with varying degrees of Dementia or Alzheimer’s. It involves creating a structured environment with set schedules and routines that will help a less stress life style, safety features and also ensure that health of the senior is kept in mind while developing programs to cultivate or improve cognitive skills.
Preventive care works on the principle that prevention is better than cure. It consists of measures taken for disease prevention, as opposed to disease treatment. During a preventive visit, the Doctor or physician determines what tests or screening are appropriate for a person based on many factors such as age, gender, overall health status, personal health history (family health history) and current symptoms or chronic health concerns.
Person with Disability Care
One very important segment in senior living is the care for Special children with disabilities, after the demise of parents/guardians’. The need of the hour is to create an enabling and empowering environment that would provide lifelong care and inclusive residential support.This requires a good understanding of the situation and providing the right care for both the seniors and their wards.
Home Health Care
Home health care is a very important segment of Care. It is gradually and steadily finding its niche in the Indian health care system. It will become the next big and best thing on the Indian healthcare horizon. With an ageing population and the rapid increase in various types of chronic illnesses, there is an urgent need for quality health care. Private sector medical institutions and government hospitals are unable to cope with the demand since the average Indian still finds access to health care difficult. Given the fact that for every one thousand people, there are only 0.7% beds, home as a virtual hospital is the future.
Covai’s PolyCare is a professional healthcare centre that provides a wide range of personalised and professional medical services to the patients who are members of the PolyCare. It is intended to revive the concept of Family Doctors through Covai’s PolyCare, a combination of Polyclinic manned by General Physicians (GPS) and backed by Specialists only for those who need to see them.
