Mrs. Usha Puri has been very active all her life, she has a big social circle. Due to the constant back pain that troubled her for months, Mrs. Puri decided to undergo a spine surgery. Post- surgery she was recommended bedrest. Mrs. Puri’s husband, Dr. Puri decided to seek professional help because it would be taxing for him to take care of his wife all by himself. Dr. Puri himself in his 80’s was not sure if he could provide the constant care required by his wife post- surgery. This is when the Puri family decided to hire a caregiver from Life Circle.

Journey with Life Circle

She prepares morning tea, helps with brushing, bathing, grooming etc. and helps her move around. Most importantly she is a great companion and never leaves Mrs. Puri alone.

Journey hereafter…

Mrs. Puri awaits to be perfectly fine very soon and get back to her circle of friends and family.

Anjali loves her job. She says she wants to serve seniors and spread happiness; she wants to touch as many lives as possible. Her family is very supportive about her job.

Anjali is a graduate and loves her work as a professional caregiver. People like her opting for caregiving as a profession gives caregiving the much needed fillip as a dignified, meaningful profession. We at Life Circle hope that such stories motivate many more individuals to take up the profession, hence contributing to reducing the gap in demand versus supply of caregivers for seniors at home. Ageing in Place is not possible with a good supply of committed workers willing to work in homes of seniors, which often is their first choice of place when it comes to ageing.
