General Wellbeing (at-home)

In October last year, I fell ill during the Navratra festival due to fasting, my husband found it extremely difficult to manage the house as well as my medical condition. My sons live in the US and they arranged for Samvedna staff to come and visit us and get us medical assistance. Since then we have been using their services regularly. Their Care Specialist visits us twice a week and checks on us regularly.

We are getting old and physical health fails us at times. It is good to have some young people visit us regularly and help us with our needs. They have helped us learn our smart phones and give us company for hospital and bank visits. Our experience has been wonderful with Samvedna, they are truly helpful in times of need and otherwise. I wish they would visit us more often.

I enrolled my mother with Samvedna this summer 2018 after having a detailed discussion with professionals at Samvedna as it seemed the right care for my mother who has been diagnosed with early dementia besides her medication. Ravina, who comes to visit my mother twice a week at home has been a true companion for my mom. She spends quality time with her engaging in activities such as puzzles, coloring, word identification, news, Youtube videos, recipes, political awareness, orientation of date, time, and verbal communication which involves our family history, her interests, relatives and her own well being. My mother loves talking to her although communication has been the challenge that we are trying to address here. From time to time Ravina sends me a video clip of her singing, photographs of her coloring and even a video message for me! Truly rewarding! Ravina, who is a psychologist, sends me a full report via email of each and every visit at home twice weekly and updates me of my mother's overall mental and physical well being. This is precious as I live in the US. I see a lot of connection and engagement of my mother even more so than when I had visited her.

Samvedna has come as a blessing for us and I highly recommend it. They have simple yet effective ways to involve my mother in activities that keep her cognitively engaged. THANK YOU Samvedna!

I am very grateful to have found a service like Samvedna Senior Care for my mother, since it is a service that does not impinge on her independence or sense of self but supports her (with kindness and caring) in some of the minutiae of daily life that have started to get overwhelming with age and her failing health. The care specialist from Samvedna has built a relationship with her over the last year and has gone over and beyond to help her out in all kinds of small and big ways. I appreciate that attention and care he provides weekly - particularly when my mother is unwell and therefore has a hard time accessing everyday things like getting medicine from the local market or help with things that overwhelm her like filling out official forms. I also very much appreciate the reports after every visit.

I wanted to thank Samvedna for providing excellent care for my mother-in-law and making an essentially needed accommodation for our family. I know how important your programme is for her mental health.

Taking care of your elderly parents is difficult when you are working - and even harder when you are living across the globe. I know this first-hand as I work in high tech in San Francisco in the heart of Silicon Valley, while my retired parents live in Delhi, India. My parents decided to live independently in their own home with no-one else nearby to help them with every day issues such as getting medications, help with making appointments and so on. The time difference between California and India makes even phone calls difficult. So I was delighted to arrange for regular home visits by a caregiver from Samvedna Senior Care. The care specialist helps manage my parents daily living needs, medications and hospital visits while sending me updates on their status by email. He is also their friend and companion and someone to talk to as loneliness is also an issue. This ensures that they are happy and reduces their anxiety level. The Samvedna service has been wonderful and I am glad to provide this testimonial.

Happiness come from HOPE or let me define it in simpler words - "Something to look forward to". Every day when we wake up in the morning we aspire to do things (things we love , things we just need to complete or things we do to be socially active), we look forward to execute some plan ,travel out ,meet people ,go to work etc.. But for someone who has limited mobility (wheelchair bound) having retired from work with children like us busy in their own daily routines - our country does not offer much of opportunity to do things Independently. This someone is my Mom for whom we have tried to look at numerous options where she can be social with people of her age group & enjoy meeting them in other sense LOOK FORWARD TO SOMETHING Every Morning. Samvedna Senior Care has been able to provide THAT missing "Look Forward to" factor in our mom's daily routine. I wish them to open more and more such senior care places and spread the happiness.

Let me take this opportunity to thank you and your efficient team for the wonderful work being done for dementia patients. My father, Mr K. L. Jawarani is benefiting immensely from the therapy. In fact, the tri-weekly sessions at Samvedna are the most keenly awaited highlights of his daily routine.

The home care by Samvedna has tremendously benefited my parents and family. It has given my parents a window to express their thoughts and talents, play a game or just hear a story sitting in the comfort of their home. For the rest of the family it is a treat to see and learn how the Samvedna staff brings out the best in our elders.

When my father was diagnosed with dementia, I didn't really know too much about the disease. Then I found this place and my dad has been coming here for the last one month and I really find a good change in him, he has started looking forward to coming here. I am very happy.

My mother doesn't like to meet people. She is anti-social. When she meets people she says on their face "kyu aa gaye hai ye, mere ko abate nazi karni hai." And when she comes to Samvedna, she likes dressing up, something she always liked to do and is happy. On the way she always says the same thing - "kitna traffic hai" - she notices and is not zoned out. She comes here and she talks to everyone, she smiles, which is a big achievement for me. As you know dementia is a progressive disease, so we can work on delaying it as much as possible. I think keeping her happy and some mental interaction is good. And I am happy I am bringing her here, talking to her, which otherwise at home she just shuts down. She says at home TV dekho, here she talks.

We are thankful to you for bringing back a semblance of peaceful and fun-filled communication into mom and pop's life. Your feedback notes are a learning experience and will help us communicate better with them. You have got more from them in a few weeks.

My father is a Parkinson plus case. He has been with Samvedna for a year now. Samvedna is like a second home for him or even better, for the care and encouragement he receives here is commendable. All I know is that we couldn't have done with you all, thanks samvedna team.
