DPP LAUNCHES HEALTHCARE AT HOME FOR THE ELDERLY IN KOLKATA
Deep Prabeen Parisheba (DPP) has launched at home services for the elderly, who do not have anyone to take care of them. We provide various at home healthcare services, such as doctor’s visits and regular medical check-ups. Beside these, we have other services, like companionship, psychological counseling and technology assistance initiatives. Deep Probeen Porisheba, established in April, 2013, is an initiative of HRDS, India,
Last month we organized an interactive discussion, entitled ‘Care of Elderly Charity or Necessity’. It is a ‘unique and first of its kind concept of providing in-home services for the elderly in Kolkata and its outskirts’, as reported by The Statesman and News Mania at the press meet. The goal of the session was to shed light on the problems faced by India’s elderly whose children either live abroad, or they have become too busy with their professional lives to pay attention to their aging parent’s healthcare. News Mania reported that geriatric specialists, Dr. Dipankar Debnath and Dr. Kaushik Majumder, along with Ms. Shirsha Guha, Director of DPP, and COO of St James School of Medicine, were speakers at the event. They discussed how the US healthcare system works with various government and private agencies and how the UK has provided free geriatric healthcare to its citizens for many years.
Another Bengali publication, Aajkaal reported that DPP has ‘tied up with diagnostic centres and nursing homes for better service’. The Telegraph also mentioned the event. The discussion concluded with how ‘it was time for Indians to accept the face this growing concern and to work toward a solution.
There is a growing problem of caring for the elderly in India – or rather the lack of it. Deep Prabeen Parisheba (DPP) is a one-stop-shop for everything a senior citizen requires. Kolkata prides itself in respecting and caring for its elders, and we are taking our services to another level by making it personal for the elderly in the City of Joy by going to their homes.
