Caring for India’s aging population
The population of elderly people in India will triple by 2050 and the country now faces the challenge of taking care of such a large senior population. Many elderly people already experience a lack of adequate access to quality healthcare and social isolation.
Epoch was founded in 2011 with the aim of helping to bridge the gap between elder care demand and supply in India. Epoch offers assisted living homes in India for seniors who require help with day-to-day living but are not yet in need of 24/7 medical attention.
Epoch owns two assisted living homes. The Vermeer House in Gurgaon welcomes both seniors who are still socially active and those in need for psychological and/ or physical assistance. The Monet House is dementia-orientated.
In 2013, KOIS invested in Epoch, which opened its first home in July 2014. The services of Epoch are now focused on providing specialised services for seniors with chronic conditions, nursing needs or end of life care needs. They continue to specialise in dementia care and their programme focuses on managing the disease condition by managing overall well-being and emotions.
