One day our parents might not be able to drive, climb stairs, cook, walk or maybe even change their own clothes. Isolation and loneliness spread among the elders as social engagement and interaction drops down! It is certainly painful to think of but is a harsh reality and thus we need to ensure that they are comfortable and safe in this critical stage of their lives. It’s the circle of life… our parents took care of us and raised us to the best of their ability and made us the responsible adults we are today and now it is our turn to do the needful as they are growing old.
We all want our parents to live a long and healthy life and this requires appropriate care. Ageing parents look for ways to keep their mind busy and find a connection with others. They want our time and companionship at this stage of their lives which unfortunately is somehow difficult for us to provide since we are going through the turbulences, successes and challenges of building a career, starting a family and so much more! We at Philips understand that you can’t supply everything they might need but there are some things which you surely can! We not only help you in building effective home care solutions for your loving parents but in implementing them as well.
Most elders prefer to remain in their own homes as they age and keeping this in mind, we have tailored exclusive home care services for parents. There is nothing like getting access to expert healthcare solutions in the comforts of your home. All our caregivers are professionally trained and clinically competent so that you or your parents never face difficulty in communicating your needs and requirements.
One of the key considerations which we focus upon is the level of home care elders need. As they grow older, their requirements change and can be challenging at times too! We analyse the medication history thoroughly and only then propose effective home care services for parents. We also understand that as time goes by, it is natural that changes in their medical or cognitive condition may require a change in living arrangements as well.
Our continued focus is on providing improved quality of life and cost-effective treatment. Everyone is unique and hence we team you up with only those caregivers who fit the physical and medical needs of your parents. For instance, if your parents are suffering from specific disease, we assign the caregivers who are specialists in that context. Your parents practically become children at this age again and owing to this role reversal, you need to fulfil your responsibilities towards them as they did towards you while you were growing up.
At Philips, we have continued building trust with our customers through our state of the art technology products and our home care solutions are just one more step to show you how much we care. To know more, please visit us at https://www.philips.co.in/healthcare/homecare/.
