Keeping with its recent announcement to invest over Rs 300 crores across residences for seniors, care homes, and care-at-home services in the next three to four years, Antara, a part of the Max Group, has launched a 37-bedded care home facility in South Delhi’s Sylvan colony, Greater Kailash. This is the second such facility after Gurugram.

Globally, assisted care services is an established and sought-after category, especially in markets such as Japan, Singapore, the US, and many parts of Europe. India is still at a nascent stage but the demand for Assisted Care Services is expected to pick up due to the increase in the mass affluent elder population, quite a few of whom are seeking specialized services and solutions to their changing needs. The Covid-19 outbreak has accelerated the demand for dependable and professional services and solutions for seniors.

The homes provide healthcare and monitoring services with round the clock nursing support from medically trained care professionals, daily doctor consults, vital monitoring, medication administration and emergency response protocol, nutritionally assisted meals, regular physical activity, physiotherapy, and counseling sessions.

The Rehabilitation services consist of physiotherapy and wellness programs designed to keep seniors mentally and physically fit,” Max Group-owned Antara said in a statement.

“Besides, the problems faced by seniors in recent times, due to the lockdown and the spike in the COVID-19 cases convinced us to fast-track the opening of the new care home facility in South Delhi. The encouraging response we are receiving for this facility also validates our hyperlocal approach and the geographic significance of the current location. The proximity to hospitals, for example, is a conscious effort to remain accessible to people who need recuperative care services. With Max Group’s experience in healthcare and hospitality, we are well-positioned to cater to all senior care needs.”

The care homes have common facilities such as dining spaces, activity spaces, and lounge areas well-equipped with senior-specific details in addition to regular engagement activities. Residents will be served nutritionally assisted meals in a homely environment. They will have access to specially designed care plans for the duration of their stay under the consultation of in-house and external doctors, said the company. (IANS)

The aim of the book is to teach children that families can exist in different forms, and show them how to accept the diversity in family backgrounds.

By Siddhi Jain

Delhi-based author Pritisha Borthakur is set to release her new book, 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories'. The 1,404-word children's book was put together to address a new kind of societal debacle in the family system. The author says the aim is to teach children that families can exist in different forms, and show them how to accept the diversity in family backgrounds.

The author who named the book after her twin sons -- Puhor and Niyor -- is a parent who has seen and heard the tales of ridicule and discrimination suffered by many in India and beyond. She says the book is an artistic illustration for kids that details how different families can live and coexist. Whether it's children with two dads or two moms, children with a single dad or single mom, and even multiracial family units, Borthakur's book teaches love, understanding, and compassion towards unconventional families.

Beyond race, gender, color, and ethnicity which have formed the bases for discrimination since the beginning of time, this book aims to bring to light a largely ignored issue. For so long, single parents have been treated like a taboo without any attempt to understand their situations; no one really cares how or why one's marriage ended but just wants to treat single parents as villains simply for choosing happiness and loving their children.

Homosexual parents, a relatively new family system, is another form that has suffered hate and discrimination for many years. Pritisha emphasizes the need to understand that diversity in people and family is what makes the world beautiful and colourful. 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories' is a firm but compassionate statement against all forms of discrimination on the bases of sexual identity, gender, race, and even differences in background

Clean and maintained hands boost confidence in daily life activities.

If you feel that clean and well-groomed hands are just an essential prerequisite for women, you might like to think twice. Men should equally pay attention to their hands because our hand houses 1,500 bacteria living on each square centimeter of its skin. You can easily assume what havoc it can create in our body because in India we have the culture of eating with our hands and spaces beneath nails can become breeding heaven for germs. Moreover, clean and maintained hands boost confidence in their daily life activities. Therefore, it's important to keep your hands clean irrespective of your gender by washing or sanitizing at regular intervals. And, to keep them groomed, you don't have to visit a salon.

Rajesh U Pandya, Managing Director, KAI India, gives easy and completely doable tips to follow at home:

* Refrain from harsh soaps: You should be mindful of the soap you are using to wash your hands. Your soap can have a moisturizing element in it like aloe vera or shea butter. Ensure that you're washing your hands with normal water as hot water can make your hand's skin dry and scaly.
