Circa Aug, 2005: A humble beginning at the inauguration of
Indian Association of Geriatric Mental Health (IAGMH) at King
George Medical College (KGMC) Lucknow saw the foundation of
Avanza Geriacare being established.
Today 4 years later, Avanza geriacare aims to integrate leading
Geriatricians with their Geriatric patients & caregivers for
more wholistic outcomes. This collaborative initiative was
necessitated due to the growing silver haired population
estimated to be around 75 million by 2011. Avanza Geriacare
endeavour would be to ensure the psychological, emotional &
rational needs are met by the elderly population who deservingly
needs the best support society & the healthcare industry can
This initiative offers tips for the elderly & their caregivers
to have a ready reckoner on the most commonly prescribed
medications . It also offers daily tips for a healthy living,
nearest assistance from leading geriatricians in India ,
Important hospitals AND/OR Psychogeriatric clinics specially
suited for the treatment of the Geriatric population.
This small initiative would definitely go a long way in
improving the Quality of Life of the elderly & alleviating
caregiver stress that is much needed for an integral wellbeing.
