Health & Rehabilitation

Home Based Services

Bihani implements a Client/Patient and Family Centered Care (PFCC) Approach where the client/patient and family are “equal partners in planning, developing and monitoring care to make sure it meets their needs. This means putting people and their families at the centre of decision making” (Health Innovation Network South London) ensuring services provided are relevant and productive. As part of this approach, we have hold a consultant meeting with the client/patient and their families to develop on agreement and prescribed course of action.

For example, we have hosted events with the Menopause Society of Nepal (MESON) focusing on reproductive health issues for elders. We also partnered with NEPAN’s Jorpati Older People Association to conducted two 15-day Taichi programs for 100 or more of their older members. Read more about it:
