Giving Back To Our Community

In India, a seismic shift in demographics is underway, marked by a rapidly aging population. Projections suggest that by 2050, over 300 million elderly individuals will make up 20% of the nation's total populace. This transformation poses a formidable challenge, placing substantial strain on healthcare systems and social welfare programs.

The Aging Landscape and Associated Challenges

  • Susceptibility to Health Conditions

    As individuals age, their vulnerability to chronic health conditions intensifies. Heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer become more prevalent, accompanied by cognitive decline and dementia. This not only burdens families and caregivers but also leads to financial hardships.

  • Impact on Families and Caregivers

    The evolving social scenario, characterized by the rise of the nuclear family, leaves elderly individuals exposed to emotional, physical, and financial insecurity. Diseases and hospitalization rates among the elderly surpass those of the general population.

Addressing Geriatric Care Gaps

  • Shortage of Trained Professionals

    A significant challenge is the shortage of trained professionals in geriatrics. The undergraduate medical curriculum only partially covers geriatric care, and there's a notable absence of postgraduate geriatric courses in India.

  • Rise in Mental Health Issues

    Adding to the complexity is the alarming increase in depression and dementia among the elderly. This is coupled with a scarcity of mental health services, professionals, and societal awareness regarding elderly mental health.
