SEVA AT HOME EXTENDS SERVICES TO 4 ADDITIONAL CITIES IN PUNJAB
Extending reach and now bringing much needed support to the elder communities across 7 cities in Punjab
Nashua, New Hampshire (15 December 2020): Building on it’s success in the Chandigarh tri-city area, Seva At Home has extended its homecare and health services to 4 additional cities across the north-Indian state of Punjab. Focussing on the critical post-operative care and attendant market, Seva At Home has partnered with over 200 service providers and partners in Punjab to now include Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Amritsar and Hoshiarpur in addition to the existing network in Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula.
Discussing this strategic expansion, Founder and CEO Atul Gandhi said “The demand for quality healthcare support at home has increased rapidly, especially in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. With an acute shortage of high-quality professional caregivers in these cities, the younger members of the families especially Non Resident Indians living in the US or Canada have reached out requesting that we find a way to help their parents back in India”.
Projections by Indian Institute of Population Studies (Economic Survey 2018-19) indicate that Punjab, Himachal, West Bengal and Southern states are aging faster than the rest of India and will see the demographic dividend flip by 2030. In particular this demographic transition is a result of a drop in the Total Fertility Rate (TFR) to below 1%, as well as factors such as migration and a burgeoning NRI population. It was indicated that more than 10% of the states’ population was above 59 years of age, and with the youth traveling towards larger cities or abroad in pursuit of professional success, services like Seva At Home become even more important.
Atul added “During the COVID-19 lockdown, Mohali seniors were particularly affected, with over 45% of the cases reported occuring in the 61 to 80 age group. It is imperative that we provide trust-worthy and capable support to these patients”.
