The haemorrhage and after; seeking home care services
After Anamika Khurana* suffered a brain haemorrhage in November 2017, her husband decided to avail the services of a professional caregiver to give her quality care. After giving the matter a lot of thought, he decided to avail the services of Life Circle, a home care provider.
The patient needed help with activities of daily living (ADLs). The haemorrhage had left her paralysed limiting her mobility. A patient in such a situation becomes irritable and needs constant encouragement, inducement and persuasion to perform any sort of activity. Even giving medicines can become a daunting task not only for the family but also a professional caregiver.

“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, and she might be able to walk in two months. At Life Circle, a patient is not treated as a customer but a personal responsibility,” says the patient’s husband sounding very happy and content.
For those who survive brain haemorrhage, recovery is slow. Anamika Khurana’s case makes us realise how persistent efforts and care can bring about tremendous improvement in a patient’s health. It has been often said, “At the end of reasons come persuasion and ‘healing’”. Anamika Khanna’s is a good example.
