Health & Rehabilitation

Home Based Services

Since our establishment in 2013, Bihani has been implementing 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. To know how these simple interventions work on promoting mental/ brain health, motor skills/ physical health and overall well-being, inquire with us.
