Mrs. Anamika Khurana* suffered from brain hemorrhage in the month of November, 2017. Mr. Khurana, her husband gauged the need of availing professional help; upon some contemplation he decided to avail services from Life Circle.

The patient needed help with activities of daily living (ADLs). Hemorrhage had left her paralyzed limiting her movements. The patient, in such situations, becomes irritable and needs constant encouragement, inducement and persuasion for any sort of activity to be performed. Even medication administration can become a daunting task for the family and caregiver without patient’s consent.

About the caregiver

Ranjana- the caregiver
Ranjana, a 28 year old caregiver who hails from Odisha came in to help. She did a professional caregiving course and upon completion of the course joined Life Circle. She speaks profoundly about Mrs. Khurana “Aunty mujhe bohoot pyar se hug aur smile karti hain subeh jab main aati hoon aur shaam ko jab main waapas jaati hoon, wo mujhe bohoot pyar karti hain (Aunty gives me warm hugs and smiles when I arrive in morning and leave in the evening, she loves me a lot)”.

“Ranjana’s perseverance and the art of persuasion is something that has facilitated such an improvement in my wife’s health, there is 50% recovery to be precise, she might be able to walk in two months. At Life circle, patient is not treated as a customer but a personal responsibility” Mr. Khurana smiles and adds.

For those who survive brain hemorrhage, recovery is slow. Mrs. Khurana’s case makes us realize how persistent efforts and care can bring about tremendous improvement in patient’s health. Its rightly said- At the end of reasons comes persuasion and “healing”.
