What Is Assisted Living?
Assisted Living is defined as, "housing for the elderly or disabled that provides nursing, meals, and/or housekeeping as needed." Assisted living aims at independent living of the residents as long as possible by helping with activities of daily living (ADLs) like laundry, bathing, and other chores. Assisted living can be a temporary arrangement or a permanent remedy for the ones who need special facilities with specially trained caregivers.
Assisted living homes are not essentially the typical old age homes or nursing homes where you “leave” your loved ones, but it is in fact an opportunity that you are giving them to “live” their life with more ease, comfort, attention and care. One cannot hold love to the boundaries of your own home, when his/her heart has a vast expanse of this unlimited commodity.
In V-Golden Age, every resident finds a friend in their caregiver, who not only takes care of their day-to-day care but is also the emotional anchor for the residents in their new found family.
Geriatric care management is the process of planning and coordinating care of the elderly and others with physical and/or mental impairments to meet their long term care needs, improve their quality of life, and maintain their independence for as long as possible. It entails working with persons of old age and their families in managing, rendering and referring various types of health and social care services. It is also referred as “Elder Care Management” or “Senior Health Care Management”.
As Geriatric care managers the caregiving staff at V-Golden age is dedicated to the mission with their knowledge of health and psychology, human development, family dynamics, and offering their clients a continuum of care.
A step down care unit in any hospital is a nursing unit providing care intermediate between that of an intensive care unit and a normally-staffed in-patient division. However, in due days, the patient may be in a condition not critical enough to be in the hospital but not fit enough to be taken home in normal living conditions. Step down care centres step in here to exactly fill in that gap.
The step-down care centres are actually a step-up towards matching the needs of the hour and offer care for those who do not need critical medical or surgical care in an hospital geography but require supportive and rehabilitative health care to keep the flow of anatomy running at its best.
V-Golden Age is an intermediate or step-down facility organized, operated, and maintained to provide for the monitoring and care of patients with moderate or potentially severe physiologic instability requiring technical support. Our patient-to-nurse ratio gives the best attention to your loved one to battle disabilities of old age or illnesses.
Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life-threatening illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Palliative care is provided by a specially-trained team of doctors, nurses and other specialists who work together with a patient’s other doctors to provide an extra layer of support. It is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness, and it can be provided along with curative treatment. The serious illness that we talk about here can range from chronic pulmonary diseases or asthma or kidney diseases to even cancer, congestive heart failure and many more.

Our team of efficient doctors strive to integrate the physical and psychological aspects of patient care and offer a support system to help patients live as actively as possible until death, by enhancing quality of life and other positive influences in the course of illness.
