The care buddy, since then, has taken over the mundane tasks of running day to day affairs such as paying utility bills, managing the house staff and repairs etc. Mr Roy’s interest in his life time work has found the new light of the day and from past 3 months he has been working as an advisor to Sikkim Government and various other agencies on their organic farming projects. He travels a lot and his sense of self-worth post retirement is at its highest!

Caring for a loved one with stroke can be taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. They require extensive rehabilitation in order to regain the ability to speak, and control their basic motor skills. Mrs Kohli is recovering from stroke . She stays with her daughter who is working full time. She used to go to the hospital 5days a week for neuro physiotherapy. Family found the rehabilitation expensive ,each session amounting to 1200/- plus the travel expense and emotional and physical stress for the patient. With the help of Eldercare a neuro physiotherapist has been assigned to her and his services are being monitored by a care buddy. All this has significantly reduced the financial stress ( services are under 1000/-), there is no stress of travel through the maddening traffic and plus an added extra monitoring by a reliable buddy!

The death of a parent create feelings of vulnerability and a huge sense of loss. It also leaves one with strong feelings of longing - a need to have a parent around ‘forever’ to share our future accomplishments and offer support in our times of need. When Mr Batra arrived from London to do the final rites for his mother he was overwhelmed with her loss . We ensured that he was given enough time and space to grieve and not really be bogged down by other formalities. Eldercare took over and helped in conducting all the ceremonies for the final journey of his mother without having him to even worry about getting a DC from the authorities and other legal documents.
