Can’t Visit a Hospital? Let the Doctor Come Home!
Traveling in cities has become a cumbersome experience due to chockablock traffic and bad roads. And, if one has to go to a hospital, the ordeal is beyond the description of words. Many in cities don’t visit a hospital unless it is an emergency or it is inevitable. They are more than happy utilizing medical services at home.
Mr. Reddy had retired from the electricity department as an accounts officer. During his service, he always dreamed of a beautiful house that is far away from the mayhem of the city. So, he built himself a house on the outskirts. The neighborhood was pretty decent and his colony mostly consisted of retired employees with similar dreams.
He would do a bit of gardening, take his dog for a walk and then chat with his daughter from US on Skype. Life was pretty peaceful until he had a heart disease. He underwent surgery in a famous hospital and luckily the surgery was successful. Then started his harrowing experience.
He had to undergo medical tests frequently and visit his cardiologist periodically. This was when he felt the pain of commuting in the city. With a good 15 kilometers to travel, he had to trust cabs and autos for his transportation. The plight of elderly in metro cities of India is horrible when they have to travel alone in the city. His wife a homemaker used to accompany him, but that was of little help.
Many NRIs have this issue. Their parents stay back in the country and their heath care is a big concern to these people. The elderly parents want to lead an independent life and resist being put in an old age home. They are happy to stay in the home they built for themselves and want to remain independent.
