Those of us who have availed services from Porosh are aware that it goes all-out to serve its members in need without batting an eyelid. After all, that is the reason for Porosh’s existence. So, while the caregivers take efforts to address the medical and non-medical needs of its members, it is equally important that the team of spirited caregivers are also trained to be more efficient and better at what they are all doing.
Thus, for quite some time we have been thinking of conducting upskilling program named ‘Abhudaya’ for our caregivers to ensure all-round development. In this context we grateful to one of our empaneled doctors – Dr. Sourav Dey – who volunteered to be a part of this initiative.
The first session of three hours was conducted on June 17, 2023. The theoretical and practical sessions covered the following topics under ‘Emergency Services’:
Diarrhea and dysentery
Types of IV fluids
Handling stroke and heart attack &
Fall injury management
The session was quite lively given active participation of the caregivers. Moreover, live demonstration by Dr. Dey made it all the more engaging and interesting. For those who are keen to more about it can visit www.poroshkolkata.org.in which has a few videos and photographs of the session.
We hope that a series of such upskilling sessions will indeed make Porosh one the most trusted organizations catering to the medical and non-medical needs of the elderly members in Greater Kolkata.
