Home Visiting Doctor in Changanacherry, Thiruvalla- Elder Care Physician, Geriatric Specialist, Doctor On Call Service

Welcome to Home care service of Senior Citizens clinic

House Call Programme

House calls by physicians were once common, but have declined now due to a variety of circumstances. Previously,doctors were accessible to consult sick patients at their homes.

We are bringing that ancient concept back for the benefit of older individuals who have problems getting to hospitals and waiting in clinics for medical consultations.

The majority of senior individuals end up in hospital emergency rooms as a result of a delay in illness diagnosis and treatment while it is in its early stages.  This is largely due to issues such as poor health, lack of bystanders to accompany patients to the hospital, and lack of awareness about disease progress.

We aim to provide timely medical attention to older people in the form of geriatric physician consultations, as well as to do check-ups to patients suffering from chronic diseases in order to detect any worsening of the underlying condition and assess the need for specialist consultation or hospitalization.

We serve to patients residing in Changanacherry (daily), Thiruvalla (weekly once) and nearby areas.

Why Home Visits Make Sense for Home bound Patients

Many homebound patients are never seen by their primary care physicians, despite being chronically ill with multiple symptoms.

These fragile patients often are invisible to the health care system until they are very ill and require hospitalization. One home visit to a person with chronic illness can shed light on the patient’s home environment, values, family life, and safety. That visit improves the physician’s ability to provide routine and palliative care.

Many of the home bound patients have limited life expectancies and they need delicate and clinical care and medical counseling about treatment options. These patients benefit from geriatric physician consult.

Medical house call programs improve the continuity of care between the home and the hospital, provide support and education to families or caregivers. Home visits alleviate suffering, reduce stress for caregivers, and avert costly trips to the emergency departments
