Established in 1994 by Dr.K.R.Gangadharan, Heritage Medical Centre is India’s first exclusive geriatric health care centre. We have been specializing in nursing care for the elderly with a focus not only on illness but also on overall health and wellness. We provide short, mid and long term options apart from home care.
Providing treatment for new and ongoing medical conditions and helping patients and their families learn to manage a variety of health issues has been our primary focus. Since this age group of patients are at a higher risk of developing chronic conditions and diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Congestive Heart Failure, Cancer and Diabetes Mellitus, we specialize in providing care to such patients as well those with diminished mental ability, those with physical handicaps and many who experience intense pain.
Typically our inpatient services include:
- Dressing/bathing/feeding patients, changing bed/linen, repositioning patients, taking temperature, pulse, BP, preparing and transporting patients;
- Developing and Evaluating care plans;
- Recording Care;
- Providing routine physical and mental evaluation;
- Administering and Regulating medication;
