Swarg, Gujarat’s First Residential & Rehabilitation Seniors Care Home
“We need to continue to make improvements to the system of care recipients to respond to the needs of older people and their families and to support our dedicated, caring staff in their important good work.”
Mr. Amit Limbachiya, Founder Chairman, Swarg Community Care
When your health is deteriorating with every passing day, it becomes of utmost importance to stay by the side of your loved ones. A patient receives maximum comfort in a familiar environment rather than shifting from one bed to another.
Swarg Community Care (SCC) in Gujarat was established considering the fact that millions of senior citizens across the globe are facing health problems. By 2025, there will about 1200 million people aged 65 years according to UN estimates. Failure to address old age health needs today could develop into a costly problem tomorrow. Seven percent of the 1.1 billion Indian population is today over the age of 60. They too wish to have better access to health care, look forward to a fun, health, dignity, economic independence, and peaceful death.
Founded in 2012 by Mr. Amit Limbachiya, it is a specialized care home where bedridden, terminally ill, immobile, required assistant for daily living or permanently disabled elders can stay and be looked after under the supervision of a professional team, which consist of 24/7 Nurses, Personal care assistant, Physiotherapist, Psychologists, Behavior therapist and Consulting doctors. It is one of the healthiest and happiest places in Gujarat with 100 multiple beds & rooms’ capacity and the central theme of “Healthcare with a human touch”. It essentially is a residence for rehabilitation & 24/7 Care with excellent in-house facilities and an independent organization which helps the community, for fast and happy recovery of its guardian.
Mr. Amit Limbachiya, who is B. Pharmacy Qualified from L. M. College of Pharmacy, Ahmedabad, India. Additionally, He has accomplished Community Welfare from King’s International College, Gold Coast, Australia. He also has completed multiple connected courses and certificates from Brisbane, Australia like PBST (Positive Behavior Support Therapy), BLST (Basic Lifestyle Support Therapy), DSP (Disability Support Practice), Certificate of OHS (Occupational Health & Safety), Certificate of Manual Handling, Certificate of Managing Challenging Behavior, Certificate of First Aid & CPR and Certificate of Understanding of Body Systems.
Indian Ministry estimates say the number of people in the 60-plus age group in India will increase to 100 million in 2013, and 198 million in 2030. The elderly population will increase to 12% of the total population by 2025, 10% of whom would be bedridden, requiring utmost care. The ministry’s revised National Program for the Healthcare of the Elderly (NPHCE) expects to have 20 institutions with the capacity to produce 40 post-graduates in MD in geriatric medicine per year. Additionally, 6,400 beds in district hospitals and 1,000 beds in medical colleges for the elderly by 2017.
THE OPERATIONAL MODULE
These concerns encourage the team at Swarg to start a facility where bedridden, terminally ill, paralyzed, and disabled and other severe medical condition where a family member has difficulties to look after seniors 24/7. It is a challenge for them to provide round the clock medical care for the elderly.
Old age homes won’t be able to give admission to bedridden people. Moreover, hospitals won’t keep them for a longer time and at home, round the clock medical treatment may not be possible. This way we were born where we can provide 24×7 nursing care, doctors, physiotherapy, psychotherapy, dietician, recreational activities, accommodation, laundry care, surgical tools and homely like environment. All service provides in under one roof.
And setting the standard of residential care, Swarg Community Care is emphasizing on ensuring the optimal quality of life for all the residents by valuing their individuality and holistic needs. With a facility for bedridden and terminally ill seniors, it is a very unique care model which will help family members to provide a healthy option to keep their bedridden family member with them. Here they intend to recover the care recipients from their fragile bedridden condition towards an in-dependency.
Amit further states that “Swarg Community Care has a long vision, our strategic plan is to conduct different branches in different cities with a modern and supportive care model for the elderly in the near future in India. We have high-quality solutions for people living with paralysis, immobile, neurological disorders, terminally ills and those elderly who are unable to look after themselves at home in India, societal, policy and sector reform that directly beneﬁts residents and a strong, developing and sustainable organization”.
