Services provided by an In-Home Trained Medical Attendant

An in-home trained medical attendant provides for the general medical support at home. Trained medical attendants are caregivers to take care of the daily activities of a sick person in need, with their movement, feeding, dressing of wounds, taking care of their health, hygiene, and nutrition. The medical attendant is well trained to monitor and record general health conditions through regularly measuring physiological parameters like heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, fluid in-take and out-put for individuals undergoing special treatments. The attendant is equipped with the skills required to operate equipment like a BP machine. It is the attendant’s responsibility to act as a nurturer and attend to your daily needs both in behavior and service. An attendant’s prime objective would be carried out the medication scheduled as well as keep a track of any developments. During the procedure of treatment or checkup, the medical attendant shall inform the doctor of the patient’s history and update on the current development.

Cases when Trained Medical Attendants will help out


At times elderly loved ones, not so much capable of taking care of themselves due to being immobile, would need support and assistance. That’s when they require special medical care and support from a trained Medical Attendant. The attendant is also tasked with keeping the patient company as well as take care of his/her wellbeing in the absence of family.

Mother and Child

A newborn baby and its nursing mother with certain post-delivery complications would need special care and medical attention apart from help with such activities like feeding, bathing, and housekeeping. In such cases, the support of a well-trained medical attendant at home will ease off your mental worries.

Health and Lifestyle Management Care

Our responsibility towards our loved ones in need of help in moving around or being monitored regularly should not be shunned due to our pre-occupation/ work pressure. For such moments it is advisable to avail the hired services of a trained medical attendant. More so because we ourselves may not have any prior experience to deal with inevitable minor medical emergencies, requiring specific medical knowledge possessed by a trained Para-medic like a medical attendant.
