Human being is prone to diseases at all ages, but especially in old age, several other factors lead to suffering of health, such as physiological decline, process of degeneration & diminished resources. The socio-economic factors like retirement, loss of empowerment, loss of spouse, loneliness, change in social status also effect upon psychological and organic functions contributing in the decline of health.

Geriatrics is a science of medicine which deals with medical & health problems of elderly people aged above 60 years. People who are old and frail or people with some chronic or degenerative diseases often need continuing support once they leave hospital, as their illness may prevent them from leading an independent life, Aastha can help them achieve best possible levels of ability and help to improve or maintain their quality of life.
Geriatric care program is especially designed to support those patients who have long-term illnesses and which stay with them after they leave hospital.
Long Term Care
Long-term care is broadly defined as an array of health care, personal care, and social services generally provided over a sustained period of time to persons with chronic conditions and with functional limitations.
Terminal care is for those whose illness may no longer be curable. It enables them to achieve the best quality of life especially during the final stages of their illness. It may be provided at home, in hospital or in a hospice and it considers the person on the whole offering physical, emotional & spiritual care.
