Getting old could be a difficult experience when your health starts to deteriorate and you get increasingly dependent on others for your daily activities. It is at this time that the elderly require the most care and compassion. The importance of a proper elderly care can never be overstated as they too deserve dignity of life. Although modern constraints of life do not always allow people to take care of their elderly however, they can always opt for appropriate elderly home health care service for the smooth functioning of their life.
Elder care becomes necessary when old people start facing troubles with daily life activities like cooking, cleaning, bathing, taking medicines etc, and there is no family member available to look over them. Varied diseases and physical disabilities in old people also make elder care mandatory for them, so that they too can live independently and with dignity.
The type of geriatric care needed depends on the health condition of the old person and the severity of the problem and the type of care needed. Most people don’t require full time nurses, while there are a few who needed a 24/7 caregiver owing to the severity of their problem.
I availed Portea Health Prime service for my father Mr. Jauhar in Bangalore. Dr Yamani Nawani was the first person who contacted me regarding what plan would be best suited for my father. Dr. Yamini is an extremely competent manager and physician. She described all Portea services to me in great detail. She also designed a special services plan that would best suit my father and spent a great deal of time and energy coordinating a plan for dad. She was flexible and understanding about the needs of an elder Parkinson’s patient and I am beyond impressed with her work.
She went out of her way to understand special physical therapy needs of Mr. Jauhar and made best recommendations for him. Dr Yamini made an excellent assessment of our current complex family situation and what the priorities were. Your company is lucky to have a physician of this calibre working with for your company
I would also like to give my feedback regarding my Portea Health manager Mereena Jose, who was assigned for my father’s case. She has been an excellent health manager. She is compassionate and has been extremely supportive to my father. Mereena has done an excellent job navigating my father’s needs in the context of a current complex family dynamics. She has regularly made calls and followed up with me and given me updates. I am extremely pleased with Portea services.

After having selected an appropriate geriatric care, there are a few things that you need to make prior preparation for an effective and smooth elder care at home
Caring for the elderly can be extremely challenging if the caregiver is not able to strike a chord with the elderly. However, our caregivers are compassionate people and know how to establish a bond to provide proper care. And as much as physical care is needed, all that the elderly longs for is someone to listen to them and communicate with them. Our caregivers are appropriately trained to give overall elder care at home that includes their physical and mental well being.
|I booked a Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment from Portea and was very happy with the service provided by Dr.Shashikant and Health Managers-Jayam Samlin and Mereena Jose who visited me. The team was very cooperative and followed up with me well.|
I would like to convey my appreciation for the commitment and dedication that Health Manager Hema has towards my family. I am glad to say that I feel quite relaxed when it comes to my father’s Health as she serves as a single point of contact for any of our requirements.
I would also like to Thank Portea for giving such a good experience by providing timely services through Health Manager Hema.
I availed Portea Care Plan service for my mother and Health Manager Saba has come to be the reliable, single constant over the last 30 months or so that my mother has been in the hands of Portea. She has been “always there”, no matter the time, no matter the topic and moreover addresses all topics in a timely manner. In some ways, she is more than a facilitator, and has been caring and attentive to my mother’s needs. She has also taken the time and effort to visit my mother from time to time and is caring and attentive. Her “always on” and caring orientation has been reassuring and my mother and I look forward to continuing that partnership for the coming years.
