At Manipal Hospitals, we care for our patients and this novel initiative will help us extend our reach beyond the hospital premises. We believe that a lot of patients around the world do not receive timely assistance especially when they need it the most. These home health care services attempt to bridge this gap between us and our patients.
Home healthcare services are unique in nature as they provide one-on-one or personalized care and this leads to a strong bond being formed between the professional caregiver and the patient. Moreover, it becomes easier for the professional to assess the needs of the patient and thereby help serve them better. The major benefit of home care is that the patient and their loved ones can be in a comfortable and familiar environment. Studies suggest that being in the familiar surrounding can aid recovery in certain cases. It is also incredibly cost-effective as you can cut down on travel costs and other miscellaneous expenditure. Also, as the home care services generally charge on an hourly basis for nursing, it can be substantially cheaper than a nursing home.
Some of the in-home healthcare services provided include a range of different services such as Home sample collection, nursing, physiotherapy, critical care packages and medical equipment on rent or for sale.
