Overview

In a country like India where the number of older adults is predicted to reach 158 million by 2025 and a stunning 240 million by 2050, the need for eldercare is needed more than ever. The concept of ageism is also deeply rooted in our society where older adults are expected to take a pause and rest for the next 30-40 years of their lives. The moment one turns 65, one is expected to stop having an active lifestyle. Tune into this episode to break all your myths about old age and change your outlook on senior people. 

We bring you the co-founder of Emoha Elder Care, Saumyajit Roy who is bringing joy and Moh-abbat into the lives of elder people by the work he does. Saumyajit explains the need for an initiative like Emoha. When a person gets older, his/her value is declined in society, but it must go up because of their valuable life experiences. 80 years’ worth of experience is no doubt valuable to younger people.  

“With age, comes maturity and a lot of beautiful things.”

Saumyajit explains that elderly care is so much more than just healthcare. He explains the challenges and discrimination elder people go through and how these challenges are tackled by Emoha. In his own words, Emoha is a ‘connected community’ for elders and their families, bringing together world-class expertise and delivering single-click access to a range of health, emergency, social engagement, convenience services at home, so that elders can live life to the fullest.

While heath and emergency services are 50% of Emoha, the organization also helps elders to pursue their interests. Whether it is teaching underprivileged kids, writing books, or any other aspiration one might have, Emoha takes care of it all.

“Most of us, in our 40s and 50s don’t have the time to do, the things we want to do from our childhood. What better way than doing it in your 50s, 60s, and 90s when you have the time.” 

In another segment of the interview, Saumyajit elucidates on the cash-lessness of older adults in our country. 80% of the country’s assets are owned by 10% of the country’s population, i.e. the elder people. According to him, an innovative financial shift is required in this sector. Saumyajit explains the work done by Emoha relating to money and finance for the elders.

Elders form the core of the community and seamlessly around them are carers who like an envelope, help simplify, secure and energise an elder’s life, enhancing happiness and joy in the lives of an elder.As in any community, our elders and carers together share a beautiful relationship where distance does not matter.
Elders can stay in their home for as long as they want and still be as connected with the Emoha community, and get energized in the love and affection that each member of the community bestows upon each other. Carers have different names, different ‘avatars’ some are called care partners, some doctors, some housekeepers, but one thread that they all carry with them is a deep passion, desire to take care of elders.
Emoha is a journey and the first step starts with a deep realization that being an elder is the greatest and most satisfying part of life, something to feel proud about, something to desire, and something to enjoy in the golden days of an elder’s life. Emoha’s approach to this now globally relevant problem, starts with taking a bold longitudinal elder-centric data-analytics approach rather than the current industry wide episodic transactional approach. With 93 lives saved, 600 paid subscribers, 3400 registered elders, and a holistic tested solution where care is much beyond healthcare, Emoha’s elders today lead a far better quality of life, than ever before.
