What is assisted living?

Frequently called "old age homes" in India, assisted living homes provide housing and care for seniors who require help with day-to-day living but are not yet in need of 24X7 medical attention.

The requirement of assisted living care for every elderly depends on their medical condition and the level of daily assistance and care they need. The care scale that we cater ranges from low to high level depending on comorbidities like vascular or heart disease, parkinson’s, neurodegenerative conditions, progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), multiple sclerosis (MS), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic kidney disease (CKD), musculoskeletal disorders, chronic cardiac failure, and others.

Basic nursing care is one of the integrated & advanced parts of assisted living. Depending upon good quality care, an elderly who needs a high level of nursing care can move to a lower level of care needs. Many of our elders have come directly from the hospital to Epoch homes to continue recovering after an illness, injury, or surgery. Our facility nurses provide basic nursing care for those who need it including ryle's tube feeding, bed sore management, catheterization, cannulization, intravenous medications, wound dressing, etc.
