Geriatric Care with Empathy & Aging with Dignity
Everybody wants their loved ones to always have the best of health. But this is not always possible. Aging is a very fundamental part of life and with age the care needs also increase. The family caregivers try their best to look after their elder family members. But senior care or elder care needs a more structured and collaborative approach.
Ubiqare provides elder care service that aligns the efforts of doctors, healthcare teams, and family members together for better patient outcomes and improvement in quality of life. Our elder care programs are personalized to meet the unique requirements of each patient and address the complexity of care.
We assign dedicated care doctor to each patient to monitor the condition and engage with family members to help them understand the situation. Our care doctor is available – online and in person – in times of need.
If the patient is undergoing specialist treatment, we extend the specialist’s follow up care at home through our platform. We incorporate the specialist care protocol in our platform which is then implemented by our Care Doctor.
Our medically trained team provides skilled clinical interventions at home under doctor supervision. These interventions offer relief to the patient and help reduce avoidable hospital visits, readmissions, and complications.
Elder patients who are plagued with complex illnesses often require lab tests to be done at regular intervals under their health monitoring protocol. We coordinate these tests and provide sample collection services at home to reduce their lab visits.
We make medical supplies like adult diapers, underpads, etc. available at home to elderly patients. In special cases, our Care Manager also helps arrange for things like wheelchair, walker, special bed, etc. from our vendor partners.
Every person deserves respect and dignity in life. This becomes all the more important for senior members of the family who deal with health issues. In case of complex illnesses, they struggle with feelings of guilt and shame as well. They start seeing themselves as a burden on their family members.
Our elder care program is designed to help senior people age with dignity. Our care approach is influenced by our experience in palliation and is holistic and empathetic.
We focus on providing relief to the patient and improving their quality of life. We help them deal with their emotions and age positively. For the ones who find their lives disrupted due to clinical issues, we help them put their life back together.
A lot of senior citizens live alone for different reasons. With the modern-day work commitments, it can be difficult for the immediate family to be available all the time. Even for the family members who live with the senior citizens, it can be difficult to care for them singlehandedly.
If the senior member has complex illness, then the family caregivers may not have the necessary training, understanding of the illness, or experience of dealing with certain situations.
Ubiqare coordinates all the clinical services that the elder would need. We share the caregiving responsibilities and ensure the seniors and their families have a steady support to rely on. The family members can be assured that their loved ones are taken care of in their absence. We keep updating them about their loved one’s health.
