Elderly Care for Complex Illnesses in Bengaluru | Ubiqare
Biswajit, a 78-year-old Bengaluru resident was presented to us with several complaints. He had developed issues such as reduced oral intake and increased frequency of micturition. The reduced oral intake was beginning to make him weak and frail. It was also affecting his stamina to withstand any possible curative treatment.
Loss of appetite, reduced stamina, and frequent exhaustion further led to serious behavioral issues that complicated the situation.
Ubiqare's Home Care Program Addresses a Complex Illness
Our Care Doctor conducted a detailed clinical assessment of Biswajit. The assessment revealed that he had a mild pallor and slightly lower body weight. We discussed his medical history with him and his family, and traced the patient’s journey to an episode of chronic bronchitis a few years ago. These discussions revealed that he had been prescribed oral diuretics and high dose steroids that he continued taking for a long time without regular follow-ups.
We created a rehabilitation plan to gradually taper off Biswajit’s medication. We presented this plan to his family caregivers and set up a periodic review schedule. As his medication was getting tapered off, the Care Doctor introduced PPIs (proton-pump inhibitors) along with nutritional and calcium supplements.
The Care Doctor used our digital platform’s audio-video features to monitor Biswajit regularly and interact with the family caregivers. Biswajit’s health updates and treatment details were captured in the platform as an essential part of our evidence-based treatment plan.
Biswajit reported improvement in his overall condition within 2 months. Our plan of tapering Biswajit’s medication and adding nutritional supplements led to noticeable improvement in his health. His oral intake of food had improved which made him feel energetic and active. This led to an increase in his mobility and physical activity.
Improvement in physical health also impacted his emotional state. He started interacting more with his family embers. He also started participating more in the family’s day-to-day activities.
The assured availability of our Care Doctor and his constant interactions with Biswajit’s family put them in control of the situation.
