When children leave, Aura Elder Care comes to rescue: The story of abandoned parents

By NewsGram Staff Writer

In an era where start-ups primarily focus on generating revenues and pulling down their adversaries, a start-up called Aura Elder Care aims to provide the bliss of happiness to elderly people in their state of isolation.

This noble initiative started by Vikalp Sharma, an Elder Care expert, not only provides homely aids to the old age people, who have been partially abandoned by their children, but also endeavors to bless them with the joys that they eventually deserve.

On being asked about the reason of starting this venture, Vikalp said, “After working in elder care for almost 6 years in India and Australia, I wanted to start this facility in India as many Indian parents are living in isolation and without any support, which might lead to disorders like depression and dementia.”

The service was started in December last year, keeping in mind the psychological imbalances and internal inertia faced by the old age people. Hence, Aura Elder Care provides Intellectual Companionship and Dementia Care.

Vikalp said, “We provide home care facilities to the elderly people by sending our Elder Care Specialists (ECSs), who spend time with them and also fulfill their needs to have a friend, companion and a resource to their elder age.”

“Elder Care Specialists (ECS) accompany the elderly on reading, outings and discussing articles, help them blog about their topics of interest, play games, help them go back to their hobbies / discover new ones, assist with email, Facebook and Skype, and share stories with each other,” he further added.

Apart from all the social and intellectual companionship, ECS also manage elderly people’s medication and read vital signs, which include blood pressure, pulse rate, temperature and blood sugar. The specialists are 24*7 available on a phone call and help in monitoring the home situation and can raise a red flag whenever required.

When asked about the kind of facilities that are usually required by the elders, Vikalp said, “It depends on one’s requirement. Most of them are likely to use Technology like learning Mobile phone, I Pad etc. and few of them ask for medical aid.”

Apart from Dementia Care, Aura Elder Care also provides facilities like Health Monitoring, Home Management, Physiotherapy Care, Personal care, day programs etc.

“Elder care at home can often be taxing and rewarding at the same time. Especially with the conditions like Alzheimer’s and Dementia, a specialized help can do wonders! An ECS is a friend companion and resource to Elderly and Respite for the family,” Vikalp concluded.
