Healthcare service for elderly in city

Tuesday, 20 April 2021 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

A sizable number of Bhubaneswar’s elderly population suffers from different health challenges and need special care.

For them, quality healthcare remains unreachable due to high costs. Realising this, TriBeCa Care, a social organisation, has launched its services in the city. “We want to support the elderly people to lead an independent life. We have partnered with top clinicians to provide high-quality patient care at their homes,” said TriBeCa Care Co-CEO Tamojit Dutta, adding, “Today’s increasingly globalised workforce and nuclear family structures often deprive them of support from their adult children.”

All that the elderly people have to do to avail the healthcare services is that they have to enroll their names with the organisation with a minimum registration fee. Then, TriBeCa Care members would regularly monitor their health conditions through trained experts.

“Senior citizens, who formed only 8% of India’s population in 2015, will be 19% by 2050 and 34% by 2100,” said a TriBeCa Care official.

“The TriBeCa Care team has helped over 25,000 families in the last six years; and we hope to bring the same levels of care to the elderly and their families in Bhubaneswar,” said TriBeCa Care Co-CEO Prateep Sen.
