World Disabled Day
Cultural Program in Science City
A person inflicted with partial or total disability because of a disease, accident or congenital abnormality can become a burden on the family. Now there is a way out. Read on ...
The concept of Rehabilitation is not very popular in India yet. Many people - even doctors and medical practitioners - don't appreciate the concept of total rehabilitation. While a few government sponsored institutions are doing work on a small scale, it is indeed very important to arouse the public awareness about physical and medical rehabilitation.
Let me tell you a real story...
You may have heard many such stories. These are sad tales of people left with partial or total disability because they were not treated with full rehabilitation principles but were given incomplete treatment.
When one meets with an accident or suffers from some disability, he needs to be attended by not one but several specialists to cover all the aspects of his recovery.
How we treat our patients
At all our facilities, the Physical and Medical Rehabilitation specialist attends the patient with the above-mentioned experts to formulate a complete treatment plan. The progress is regularly monitored by a committee and the treatment plan is updated as per progress achieved so far.
Start Rehabilitation from Day 1
Yes. Its true!
You have to start rehabilitation from day 1, the day the stroke or accident took place. In fact, the treatment of the disease and the scientific rehabilitation procedure should run simultaneously. Neglect of disabilities in early stages is far costlier than aggressive rehab right from day 1.
How can you help?
You can make a difference, however small.
If you are a layman ...
... you can help to increase the awareness of the significant impact that an early and complete rehabilitation can cause. Discuss it with your family, your friends and your community peer group.
If you are managing a medical centre ...
... plan to introduce total rehabilitation facilities in your center for full recovery of your patients. Write to Dr. Ghatak with details of your infra-structure and how you plan to offer these facilities. Dr. Ghatak will then get back to you soon with a detailed offer on how you should proceed on this issue.
You can join hands with Dr. Ghatak and open a rehab department in your center under guidance of Dr. Ghatak. He will not only help you set it up, he will periodically interact with you monitoring your progress.
If you are a NGO or charitable person ...
... promoting the concept of total rehabilitation and making people at large, aware of the importance is a Herculean task. It needs immense manpower and financial resources.
Contact Dr. Ghatak with your ideas on how you can help him promote the awareness. You can also set up rehabilitation centers under guidance of Dr. Ghatak to offer the rehabilitation facilities to a wider cross section of the society so that more people can go back to live a normal life and not be confined to their homes or bed.
If you are running a socially responsible company ...
... you can sponsor the various projects being run by Dr. Ghatak. It is very important to spread the message of the importance of total physical and medical rehabilitation to the wide cross section of the society. You can derive considerable satisfaction as well as visibility by sponsoring these projects.
Contact Dr. Ghatak with your sponsorship plans and he will get back soon with further details.
