The haemorrhage and after; seeking home care services
In November 2017, after Anamika Khurana* suffered a brain haemorrhage, her husband decided to avail professional home care services. This was because her condition required quality care. After giving the matter a lot of thought, he approached Life Circle, a home nursing care provider.
Anamika needed help with activities of daily living (ADLs). The haemorrhage had paralysed her rendering her immobile. Patients in such a situation become irritable. Therefore, they need constant encouragement, inducement and persuasion to perform any sort of activity. Needless to say, even giving medicines becomes a daunting task not only for the family but also for a professional caregiver.

“Ranjana’s perseverance and the art of persuasion is something that has facilitated such an improvement in my wife’s health. There is 50% recovery to be precise. And she might be able to walk in two months. At Life Circle, a patient is not treated as a customer but personal responsibility,” says the patient’s husband sounding very happy and content.
Recovery is slow for those who survive brain haemorrhages. Anamika Khurana’s case makes us realise how persistent efforts and care can bring about tremendous improvement in a patient’s health. It is often said, “At the end of reasons come persuasion and ‘healing’”. Anamika Khanna’s is a good example.
